All required documents are subject to the NDEB’s credential verification process. This process takes approximately 12 weeks from the receipt of all required documents.
As documents are moved through the credential verification process, the status of each document is updated in the applicant’s online profile. When all of the required documents are accepted, the applicant will receive an email indicating that they have been approved and are eligible to register for the Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge (AFK).
Applicants can view the status of their documents by logging on to their online profile.
When documents are missing or a document does not meet the requirements for credential verification the applicant will receive notification by email. The email will outline what is needed to complete the application.
When documents are submitted incorrectly credential verification can take an additional 12 weeks from the time the correct documentation is received. Review the Guidelines for Required Documents carefully to ensure documents meet the necessary criteria.
The NDEB credential verification process and document requirements are established using best practice and research into the issuance of documents internationally. The NDEB monitors the circumstances in all countries to maintain reasonable documentation standards.
