Top 5 Reasons Why Applications Are Delayed
All sections of the Professional Experience Profile must be completed. Failure to complete all sections of the form will delay your application until completed forms are received at the CPESC Administrative Office.
Pay particular attention to Line 39, Erosion and Sediment Control Experiences. Be sure to rate your skill level (high, medium, or low) and include the percentage of time that you spent performing the listed skills/abilities/knowledge. The grand total of all of the items (plus any time shown on attached sheets must NOT add up to more than 100% of your time.
You must provide a completed Professional Experience Profile form for each job (employment position) that you wish to report erosion and sediment control experiences.
Remember, the purpose of the Professional Experience Profile is to allow members of the Application Review Committee (ARC) to accurately assess your qualifying work experience.
CPESC, Inc. policy specifically states that no more than two (2) references should be coworkers. By coworker, we mean individuals that work in the same office that you do.
Good sources for references (outside your company) are clients and colleagues in other companies that you work with. If you are having trouble with references, call the CPESC Administrative Office before you send your application.
It is critical that your references be familiar with your expertise. Select references that meet these criteria even if none of them is a CPESC® or a CPSWQ®.
Let your references know that they may be contacted by CPESC, Inc. regarding your application. If they are unable or unwilling to provide information, select a different reference.
If using education to qualify, you MUST supply transcripts for your degree(s). A photocopy of your degree will not be accepted in lieu of the transcripts. We do not need official copies of your transcripts. Student copies are OK. Applications received without transcripts will be delayed until the transcripts are received. If you have a degree, the transcripts must show that the degree was awarded.
Applications that are received without the proper fee are not processed. If your check is returned due to insufficient funds or if your credit card will not process, we will suspend processing on your application.
