Once partners submit a Project Closure Report, the CargoWise Partner team will review the report and forward its contents to the Client Contact for verification via email within 2 business days. Once the Project Closure Reports have been verified by the customer (by reply email) and your Subject Matter Expert qualifications have been approved, partners will receive confirmation of their accreditation via email.

PCRs are valid for 18 months from the project completion date. For example, projects completed from January 2020 onwards will be considered valid toward your partner competency.
Partners can expect additional competencies to be added to the program over time.

New competencies will be accompanied by additional criteria, learning material and benefits.
