How can a company view competencies pending verification?

Competencies can be set up in the system as requiring evidence and or verification. If a competency has been defined as requiring evidence and verification, all uploaded evidence will be submitted to the RIW Service Desk for verification. 

The RIW Service Desk review the submitted evidence against the Business Rules which have been developed by industry. The Business Rules provide consistency and an agreed minimum acceptance criteria for the verification of competency across RIW Program participants.

Where a competency has been submitted for verification, the progress of the competencies that are awaiting evidence verification can be monitored and maintained via the Competencies Pending Verification shortcut.
