Application Processing Times

Application processing times can take up to 30 days. All steps in an application must be submitted in full, must be complete, and must be accurate. An application is complete when every step has a green bubble. A green bubble with a white checkmark means CCAPP staff have verified and approved that step. Any step that is rejected will have a red bubble and must be corrected by the applicant. The processing time will be delayed and not resume until the applicant corrects the rejected step and re-submits all/any rejected steps.

Certemy User Tips

  • Do not use multiple email accounts. If you need to change your email address, see below.

  • Do not use your work email address. Accessing your Certemy account if you change jobs will become difficult, especially if you forget your password. Changing your email address is not a simple process and takes time. Avoid delays by using a personal email address.

  • When opening a new application, do not use alternate email accounts. Re-enter the exact same information (name, email address, password) you submitted for the original application.

  • Email or other profile changes must either be submitted through our [Contact Us] section or relayed to CCAPP personnel directly through a phone call or direct email.

  • Password resets are done through the Certemy login portal with the [Forgot password?] button.

  • Name changes are done in the account by selecting the [profile details] link from the profile icon in the top right.

  • Be precise in your spelling: your documents are printed according to the information you provide.

  • If you require assistance, use our information request form.
