        Glad to share the update that TVA has approved for us to conduct the next TVA certificate exams on Sunday, May 17th at both our TAGDV centers(DE & PA). The venue and timing will be announced later. Registration deadline is March 15th, 2020. We must receive all the forms with payment on or before 3/15/20 by post or in person.

      Recently TVA has set up a new rule that all students willing to take TVA exams in May must register by December of previous year. That means any first time student should have registered with TVA by 12/31/19 to take exam this May. For those who wish to take Intermediate/Advanced exams, if they’ve taken Basic/Intermediate exam already, they don’t need to register again. Use the student ID you got from Basic/Intermediate exam registration.
