Re: What is the qualified pay scale?

Thanks for the reply! I appreciate it. Are they going to ask me and is it going to be any issue if I am not an American citizen if I want to get the MEPID?

Re: What is the qualified pay scale?

@ psyguy


I have a Canadian degree... is that going to work for ACSI? Also, I'm not Christian, is that going to be a problem?

P.S. They agreed that both of these certificates will be accepted! Thank you so much for the information you have provided me
