Here is some more information about the review:
Part One: Proofreading Review
The first part is a 1-hour timed proofreading review. You are provided with a good-looking resume that is full of errors and asked to identify 25 specific mistakes within the hour. This portion of the review is graded within 1-2 days.
Part Two: Resume and Cover Letter Writing Review
For the second part, you will be given a candidate profile and asked to write a resume and cover letter based on the profile. The documents (both resume and cover letter) must be submitted to the Certification Chair in three formats: Word, PDF, and ASCII. You will have three days to complete the project, which is handled via e-mail.
Your work will be reviewed by three graders who are not aware of the NCRW candidate’s identity. It is a pass/fail review, but you will receive the graders’ comments either way. Timeline for grading Part Two of the review is 2-3 weeks.Failure of the NCRW Review
If you fail Part One of the review you must wait six months to retake it ($70.00 fee). If you do not pass it we strongly recommend that you take a grammar course.
If you fail Part Two of the review you must wait six months to retake it ($70.00 fee). If you fail this part a second time you must wait one year to retake ($70.00 fee).
