3RCertified Evaluators are industry experts that provide on-site verification services as part of the application process. Once information is entered into the 3RCertified online application, an in person evaluation is conducted to ensure data is verified. 3RCertified evaluators review submitted documentation, observe on-site operations and interview applicants in order to determine the scoring for each 3RCertified question.
