If you are awarded credits that you don’t need right away, they can be placed in reserve for future use. When you receive the statement of credits awarded, send an email to email@example.com with your full name and IRN number to request that the surplus credits be placed in a reserve account.
To request the release of your reserved credits, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your full name, IRN number and the number of reserved credits you’d like placed on your record. Include a copy of the statement acknowledging the award of these credits with your release request.

If you disagree with your Professional Portfolio or Experiential Essay results, you may still be eligible to receive credits through the Credit Challenge process. To be eligible, you must have complied with your evaluator’s request to provide complete information about your professional experience during the initial evaluation process. And, if you’ve submitted an Experiential Essay and not received the credit that you expected, you must have rewritten your essay and resubmitted it for a second evaluation before you proceed to a credit challenge.
To issue a credit challenge you must follow these steps:
Once you’ve submitted your email and supporting documents, you’ll receive an email notifying you if your Credit Challenge was approved. If approved, your file will be reviewed by the Prior Learning Assessment Supervisor. Please note: The challenge may result in fewer, the same, or more credits being awarded. After the credit challenge has been reviewed and a final decision is made by the Prior Learning Assessment Supervisor, it cannot be disputed further.
If you have any questions about the Credit Challenge process, please email email@example.com.
