Policy 11: Certification Criteria Effective Date
An evaluation to determine whether a candidate complies with all the applicable certification requirements will only be made after an examination requirement has been satisfied.
If an examination requirement has been satisfied, but one or more of the other criteria have not been satisfied, then a Conditional Decision Letter regarding certification will be mailed to the candidate. This conditional decision will be honored for up to one year from the date of issuance. After the one year period, the candidate must comply with any new criteria that may have come into effect in the interim.
