Once qualified, companies receive MVP status for a three-year term. Upon renewal, MVP companies must again document compliance, ensuring their ongoing commitment to professionalism, industry knowledge and high performance. Keep in mind, there are no current plans to alter program criteria. If standards are adjusted in the future, MVP member companies would not need to conform until renewal. There is no charge to apply as NTEA underwrites the cost of MVP - part of an ongoing effort to enhance the core competencies of its members.

Not an MVP company? Take the next step.
Qualified candidates (current NTEA manufacturer or distributor members) can apply for MVP status at any time. Visit  ntea.com/mvp  to learn more, or contact NTEA's Technical Services Department for personalized assistance (800-441-6832 or  mvp@ntea.com ).
