Do you realise that you are asking for documents to be supplied that may not exist or be relevant in the submitters country

Thanks for the feedback.
It is optional documents where users can check boxes in the form for the documents they attach.
I have corrected the intro wording "if available".

Yes, You can!
We will have a certified user directory when the exam is launched.

At the moment the questions are in final review inline with current updates.
We will do second pilot test next week. If everything goes well, the project will be launched.

I'm pleased to hear that this idea is nearing a launch date. I first encountered hearing about the program back at JAB13 and I've been wondering where it got to. Looking forward to seeing the outcome of the next pilot.
