When applying for a Certificate for Added Qualification, how do I submit cases for review?

When you select the need for case review in your CAQ Application, you will receive an email in your inbox within 24 hours giving you information on how to submit cases to our new Case Archive. To begin the case submission process, click the Create Case Summary button to the right of your available CAQs, and fill out the requred information on the subsequent form. Once you have completed the form, click the Save Case Summary button to submit your Case Summary to the ABPM. Once the required number of cases are completed in your case summary, an administrator will select a portion of those cases to have more detailed information submitted against it and anonymously reviewed.
