How long does it take to go through
the Endorsement process?
It varies. Some applicants begin and complete the process in two weeks and some may take up to a year or more. The length of time depends on multiple factors, such as - how many requirements are completed before the start of the application, whether or not the applicant has received reflective supervision before beginning the process, how much time and how often the applicant works on the application, whether or not the applicant is required to take the exam, etc. You can discuss the timeline with us before beginning the process.
How is the review process conducted?
After you submit and pay the processing fee, two application reviewers will look over your application. They will go through your application to check your competencies and ensure you meet endorsement requirements. If any feedback is given regarding your application your endorsement coordinator reach out to you to let you know to amend your application before re-reviewing. If you are approved, you will receive a congratulatory e-mail followed by an official certificate and letter.
Can I have access to my
reference rating forms?
Applicants cannot see the forms themselves, but if you do not waive your right to know their contents and you are deferred for some reason related to the reference ratings, we or your reference(s) will relay the reasons for the deferral to you.
What is an Advisory Review?
Applicants can receive an advisory review to guide them through the Endorsement process. The review will provide you with feedback and support in completing your application and documenting all of the requirements prior to submitting.
