Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I receive contracts/assignments?
The Certified website allows you to view and offer your services for open contracts/assignments. Some assignments now allow you to automatically "link" (Autolink) yourself, which means that you are then assigned, and agree to complete the assignment as outlined. Other assignments of contracts are offered for you to request. After you request an assignment, it will show up as "Pending" when you view your information. This means that the assignment has not yet been assigned to anyone by the Zone Manager. If the assignment status is "Outstanding", it has been assigned to you. Currently, if you are chosen for an assignment, you will receive a confirmation call from the Zone Manager before it is assigned to you. If the assignment status is "Unavailable", then it has been assigned to another Certified Field Associate. Please keep in mind that the same assignment may be requested by many Certified Field Associates. The number of available assignments is always changing, so you may want to check back often if you don' find an assignment that fits your criteria.
What do I do when I fulfill the contract/complete the assignment?

Finally, the original, completed, and legible paperwork should be mailed within 24 hours, as we cannot bill a client without it.
