Once we have your application for certification, the two candidate evaluation forms, and a current resume/CV, we will process this package and send it to the WSO Certification Board for their evaluation. It takes two to three weeks to get the Board responses back in our office. If you are approved for a certification that does not require an exam, as soon as you pay the required fees your certificate will be forwarded to you. If you are approved for a certification that does require an exam, we will need to set up a date, time, and place for you to take the exam. How soon you take the exam is generally up to you. Once the exam is complete, the exam is graded and evaluated within two to three business days (Monday through Friday).
