Checked the status of my application online today and got the following notice:
Form Completed - Deficient - Application Incomplete
I called them (Customer Contact Center 850-487-1395) to get clarification on the “**Deficient” **items. They were very helpful, and told me that a letter went out in the mail yesterday explaining my deficiencies. She also explained what they were – The first item was that I had not completed the third page of the application. This is the page where you explain your answers to the background questions on the previous page. O.K. so on the previous page I had checked the YES box on item 1 (since I had a traffic offense), and I checked the NO box for items 2, 3 & 4. On page three I filled out the first Section III (b) with info pertaining to my traffic offense, and marked the two remaining Section III (b) as “N/A”. The helpful lady on the phone agreed that it appeared that I had sufficiently completed that portion of the application, but her department was not actually processing the applications so I would have to respond to the letter once I received it and explain to them that I have completed page three. She suggested that I ask them to call me in my response letter, apparently you cannot call the processing department directly.
The second item that I was deficient in was that I did not provide them with sufficient evidence that I had passed a proctored exam. The info she had was that the info I submitted did not refer to the exam as being proctored. Well ---- I had submitted the “Examination for Certification Membership Florida InterNACHI” that I had received from Zoe Fackler. I must agree that the Certificate does not specifically say that the exam was proctored, but it does say “proctors signature” next to Zoe’s signature. Also, taking a proctored exam is a prerequisite to joining Florida InterNACHI, and I submitted my Florida InterNACHI membership with my application as well. The reason i bring this up is because I beleive that some licenses have already been issued,and if that is the case, then maybe there are several different people reviewing the applications. Some accept the form and some don’t. Either that or there is something else that i should have submitted that i am unaware of. Oops, i did just realize that there is a place on this test certification sheet (or whatever it is called) that is suppose to be signed by the test taker. I did not sign the one that i sent with my application. Maybe that is why it was returned. Duh. If you haven’t sent in your application yet, make sure that you sign the “Examination for Certification Membership Florida InterNACHI”. Is anyone else getting deficientcy notices on their application?
ps - They gave me the following fax number to send correspondence to
