Collection: HCV Program Management (V.P.M.)


This class is one of the two seminars that comprise the HCV management series. The other seminar is HCV Executive Management, which is designed for executive directors, associate directors, and HCV managers.

HCV Program Management has a similar audience and is designed to be most useful for HCV managers and upper-level management. However, HCV team leaders are also highly encouraged to attend this class. The content areas focus more heavily on technical and regulatory information and include in-depth training on PIC and EIV.

During the class, a program assessment of each function will be made so the manager can focus on how to upgrade program quality. It includes program regulatory knowledge checks and provides management guidance and tools including portability tracking, SEMAP indicator documentation for quality control, and a tool for documenting in-depth file reviews.


When the HCV Program Management course and test are completed with a passing score, the professional is authorized to use the NMA V.P.M. designation.


This is an intermediate-level class. The HCV Specialist class is recommended as a prerequisite.
