If you indicate availability and are selected to participate in this review, you will receive a brief training on the online review process that will also be conducted online October 10, 2012, 3:30-4:30p. On average it will take an individual reviewer about two hours to complete the training and the review. For your participation in this brief online review you will receive Professional Development credit for the time spent in review.
