Peer Review Portal Instructions

When you access the certification portal, you will see an activity called, “Annual Summary of Continuing Education”. To add entries into the annual summary, click the orange button to begin.

If you are scheduled to do a peer review, the peer review section will be located towards the bottom of the screen. Scroll down to the peer review section and click the “Complete Attestation” button.

A pop-up window will appear. Select the Attestation, then select if you’ve had a faith group change or not. If you have had a faith group change, you will be required to attach the new letter of endorsement from your new faith group. Once you’ve completed this, please click the green submit button to return to the peer review screen.

Next, you will click the orange “Add Member Details” button. This will open a pop-up window.

On the pop-up screen, you will need to enter the name of the BCC who is serving on your peer review committee in the first box. If they are a current BCC, their name will appear as you begin typing. Please remember, you need at least two (2) BCC’s, certified through BCCI on your committee. If the person’s name does not appear in the first box, you will need to verify that they are a current BCC through BCCI.
You will then need to enter their email address, then click the orange “Send to Committee Member” button, to be taken back to the peer review page.

You will need to repeat the steps for committee member 2, 3 and 4 (optional), by following the instructions in the previous step. For committee member 3 and 4 (optional), they may be certified chaplains of ACPE, CASC/ACSS, NACC, NAJC, NAVAC, and/or ecclesiastical or professional colleagues of the chaplain being reviewed.

Once you’ve completed adding the committee members, they will receive an email, like the one below, with a specific link to verify that they did serve on your peer review committee.

When the committee member, clicks the link in the email, it will take them to a page, with the request to verify they served on your peer review committee. To verify, they will click the orange “Verify Committee Details” button, which will open a pop-up window.

The pop-up window will ask the committee member to attest that thy served on your peer review committee. They have the option to attest or deny the request. To accept it, they will click the green “Attest” button, to deny, they will click the red “Deny” button. Once they have made their selection, it will update your peer review information in the certification portal.

Once the committee members have responded to the attestation request, you will see that the information have been updated in your certification portal. Once all three committee members have verified that they served on your peer review committee, you will be able to submit your peer review along with your continuing education information. Please note that the peer review and CE submission is one process for the years you’re required to do a peer review.
