Due to the COVID-19 situation:
As a result of the State of Ohio working hard to contain COVID-19, Gov. Mike DeWine has strongly advised state agencies to postpone large gatherings of constituent groups or employees. We are following these guidelines and are therefore encouraging you to use the online forms on this page to submit your certification documents. Mailing the documents is another option but please note that hand-delivered documents will not be accepted.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your understanding.
