Contact the Certification Board
In an effort to make your communication with the Board as efficient as possible, we have developed a quick reference for you to navigate our website. Drastic budget cuts have reduced staff from five full time employees to two over the past year and a half. We have eliminated phone contact as we no longer can “man” the phones. It is much faster and more efficient to have you find the material you need without emails. Needless to say I welcome your questions or comments if you cannot get the answer you are looking for. We read and prioritize scores of emails every day. You will get a response to your question.
Please realize that the less time we spend answering your questions, the more time we can devote to the core timeframes we have for testing, recertification reviews, educational reviews, transcript reviews and other work that needs to completed.
