Eligibility Appeal

Applicants who are notified that they do not meet the eligibility requirements for initial examination or recertification may appeal this decision by sending a written notice of the appeal to the ESPCC at cesp@apse.org within 30 days of receipt of the adverse eligibility decision. 

No new or additional information may be submitted with the appeal request than what was provided in the application.

The ESPCC director will forward the notice to the Certification Council for review. The Certification Council will review the applicant’s information and will make a final decision regarding eligibility. 

The eligibility appeal will be reviewed within 45 days of receipt. 

Written notice of the final decision will be sent to the applicant within 30 days of the review.

During the time period in which your eligibility appeal is under review your payment will not be refunded. Should the Council determine you eligible, you will be able to schedule for the next testing window available.
