The ICDVP Policy Manual is currently being updated.  In order to not cause any confusion we have decided to take if off of our website temporarily until the necessary revisions are completed.  All ICDVP forms are still available on our website and can be downloaded.  For answers to any ICDVP policy questions, please contact ICDVP at ilcdvp@ilcdvp.org or (708) 334-9225.  Thanks so much for your patience.


important notices

During COVID-19, ICDVP did not enforce the 15-hour in person training requirement and allowed all 30 CEUs to be completed online.  We considered feedback from certified individuals, ICDVP board members, and other credentialing bodies when making a decision to change the standards for CEU training. 
Effective 04/18/22, ICDVP will no longer require 15 CEU hours be completed in person.  As a reminder, all CEUs must be related to the 40-hour domestic violence and/or PAIP training topics.  If the training is completed at a site that is not an ICDVP certified CEU training site, a petition and fee will be required for each training.
