Getting EP

Post by ponic » Sun, 02 Sep 2007 9:07 pm

Hello,

My company submitted my papers for EP, however there is delay in getting my experience certificate from my present company, would that be a problem in getting EP? They submitted my papers online without my experience certificate?

Thanks

That normally isn't a problem. If they want to see the documents they will ask for them to be submitted by hand or scanned copies. It is normal to apply online and you do not need to submit any documents at that time.

I would assume I would be getting my EP approved in principle without my experience certificate right.

They submitted last Wednesday, so how long does it take to get approved?

Thanks a lot.

Did you self-assess yourself ? This is quite a handy little tool to experiment with, which provides some extra confidence although as it says, can't be relied upon.

It can take a couple of days or a couple of weeks. I've seen both in recent months in our own applications.
