All candidates have the right to file an appeal of an adverse decision resulting in a denial of certification or recertification based on a failure to satisfy application requirements, payment of fees required by the Consortium, or failure of the certification exam caused by conditions beyond the candidate’s control.

An appeal must be submitted via the Appeal Requests & Reporting Form. The appeal must be submitted no later than 30 calendar days after notification by the Consortium of the adverse decision. All relevant supportive documentation must be included or referenced in the appeal submission.
