Just passed the certification exam? Individuals will typically receive invitations in the month following the date they pass the exam, e.g., Janine passed the exam and became certified on February 6, 2022 and Tina passed the exam and became certified on February 26, 2022; both newly certified individuals would have received their invite to activate their portal account in mid-to late March. The invitation is sent to the email address submitted with the exam application.  Use the Contact Us form if you think should have received your account invite.
