Upon completion of seat checks for recertification, the technician will submit the seat check(s) online. Encourage them to do so as soon as possible. You will be sent an automated email letting you know that you have seat checks to review.
The email is a courtesy and is not required for you to access pending seat checks in your Online Profile. Please be sure firstname.lastname@example.org is an approved sender.
To review seat checks submitted for your verification, log into your CPS Online Profile and click on the REVIEW/APPROVE SEAT CHECKS action item.
You will see three separate tables.
- TABLE 1: This table includes any seat checks that are pending your approval. Make any pass/fail designations needed and click SUBMIT.
If you fail a seat check, you may chose to enter a short reason that will appear in the seat check result notification email. You can enter anything you'd like but remember they will see it as you enter it. One example of a reason might be, "I don't recall this event, please contact met at xxx...".
- TABLE 2: This table includes seat checks that you have already graded as passed or failed. You can change the pass/fail status for any of these seat checks.
- TABLE 3: The final table includes seat checks that you have already passed or failed and those that were automatically approved for individuals that have recertified. These cannot be changed, as the person's recertification may have been dependent upon that approval.
Please do click on the REVIEW/APPROVE SEAT CHECKS action item regularly to be sure there are no pending seat checks for you to review.
PLEASE NOTE: As of April 1, 2010, seat checks are NO LONGER automatically approved after 14 days. If no action is taken, they remain pending (ungraded). Techs are encouraged to follow up with you directly if they are in a time crunch.
