Online Self-Paced Learning

Other than classroom training, IACVS now provides another option to busy professionals to get the necessary knowledge, skills, tools, techniques and processes to prepare for ICVS Certification. For more information, you may visit or contact  

The e-learning course has simplified the very complicated and critical subject of valuation. While taking the course, the learner progresses through the process of valuation by starting with a thorough understanding of what value is, moving on to what created it and finally measuring and interpreting it. The content has valuable insights of experts, examples, how-to’s (instructions to candidates) and so on. It covers in detail the core concepts that drive value before moving on to measuring and creating value in the real world.

The course imparts unparalleled clarity and rationale in the inter-linkages between financial concepts. It makes valuation a logical rather than a mathematical exercise.
