Certification of Domestic Violence Professionals

The Illinois Certified Domestic Violence Professionals (ICDVP) is a not for profit organization that was established to foster uniformity in domestic violence and partner abuse intervention services throughout the State of Illinois, and create recognized professions of Certified Domestic Violence Professionals (CDVP) and Certified Partner Abuse Intervention Professionals (CPAIP) by setting standards to certify domestic violence and partner abuse intervention professionals and regulating the process of certification. 

The Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV) is an Ex-Officio member of the ICDVP Board of Directors. While ICADV and ICDVP work closely on many issues, ICADV does not actually certify domestic violence professionals. ICDVP is charged with that voluntary certification process.
