Required documentation - what if I can't obtain it?
Thursday, April 24, 2014
- Q: What if my previous employer went out of business and/or is
unwilling to provide any information to me? Do I still have to provide
company documents and data for the certification exhibit?
Yes, you must provide documentation and data. There are no exceptions.
Without actual documentation of your management activities and
performance, your certification will not be approved. If your previous
employer won't provide information, you must find information from other
sources, such as your insurance provider, former colleagues, etc.
What if my current employer or client says the information NATMI
requires for my certification application is proprietary and won't allow
it to be shared?
A: Explain that the information will not
be shared with anyone other than the individual exhibit reviewer
approving your application. Your exhibit will be returned to you after
it is approved and no copies will be retained by NATMI. The company can
block out sensitive data or provide aggregate data if it is concerned
about revealing proprietary information. Regardless, if you are unable
to produce the required documentation and data, you will not be approved
for certification. NATMI makes no exceptions -- all applicants MUST provide required documentation.
