Application Appeals Process
An applicant who receives notice they are ineligible to take the certification examination due to insufficient experience may (within fourteen (14) calendar days of the notice) appeal the results in writing to the NBHHC. An appeal is a letter addressed to the Chair of the NBHHC c/o the Education Director at the NBHHC address. Appeals can also be accepted via email: certification@ nbhhc.org or fax (916) 641-5881. The appeals process allows the applicant an opportunity to provide an explanation of areas where the reviewer indicated insufficient experience. It is also an opportunity for the applicant to submit any missing documentation that was previously omitted or to submit new items for consideration. The appeals process is not allowed for applicants who are ineligible because their application had missing pages or if information was misrepresented in the application.
