HOW DO I ATTEST TO SKILLS COMPETENCY FOR ADVANCED LEVEL PROVIDERS
Select either approve or deny and submit. An individuals skills competency can only be denied after the recertification application has been submitted. If an individual hasn’t submitted a recertification application you will see Provider’s Recert Application has not been submitted yet when you roll over their deny button.
Recert2.0 allows you to approve the skills of an individual without the individual submitting a recertification application. The two processes are now independent.
