The Certification Commission representative and the local ACPE Certified Educator shall be given access to the applicant’s portfolio no less than 30 days prior to the interview. Each will review the materials and evaluate the applicant in accordance with the competencies for admission.
If either the Commission Representative or the local ACPE Certified Educator determines that an applicant has not met the required competencies, they shall request a conference call with the ACPE Certified Educator from the local center to discuss their concerns. The group must reach a consensus as to how to proceed with the process, seeking consultation from the Chair of the Commission as needed.
Upon completion of the assessment of the applicant’s materials and the interview process, the committee shall determine the applicant’s level of competence and suitability for the certification process. The decision shall require a minimum of two votes for acceptance. Following the committee’s deliberation, feedback will be provided to the applicant.
