Supplemental points

Supplemental points represent activities in excess of the minimums for each section (Education, Experience, and Contributions).  The portfolio automatically applies all surplus points in each category to the supplemental point category.  Supplemental points accumulate in each of the three categories; the applicant may earn them from just one category or all three.

An application can be submitted online when there are 150 points overall and the minimums have been met for each category. If any points are deemed unusable or irrelevant and the total falls below 150 points, the applicant will be contacted for clarification. If the points are determined to be false or misrepresented, the application will be rejected, but only after conversations take place with the applicant.

After all three components have been completed, the web application will total the points from each section and show in the Total Certification Points. If the final total does not exceed 150 points the 'Submit' button will not appear.   When the site has determined that all point requirements have been met, a blue Submit Application button will appear, and, at that point, the applicant can submit the portfolio for official review.
