  3. Send Certification Request Form to Integrator Management (
  4. Develop & test, contact on call inbox for support.
  5. Once solution is ready for certification, PA is assigned and cert passes can commence!!

Once the solution is validated, a certification letter is sent and you can begin boarding!
