Three Professional Recommendation Forms are required with your application.
Professional recommendations must be filled out by someone who has worked with you in a professional capacity. All documents must be written in English or translated to English.
You may submit professional recommendations using the Certification Portal in two ways:
Upload Scanned Recommendation: You may use this option to upload your documents if you have already received the completed professional recommendation form(s).
Submit Online Recommendation: You may use this option to send a request by email to your recommender to complete an online professional recommendation on your behalf.
Professional recommendations are valid for a period of three years from date signed.
