What is performance verification?
Performance verification is the process through which NICET acquires your supervisor's affirmation of your on-the-job performance. Your verifier will read the description for each performance measure and if he or she has witnessed you perform those activities, your verifier will write his or her initials in the space provided. NICET will not award you a certification unless each performance measure used to meet the exam requirement has been verified.

Who can be my verifier?
Your immediate supervisor (past or present) should verify your performance measures. If you are the owner of your company or the highest-ranking manager, you should use another professional from outside your company who has been in the position to supervise and/or inspect your work. A relative may serve as your verifier if he or she has been your immediate supervisor. A person who serves as a verifier cannot also submit a recommendation on your behalf.
