Schedule Fixed CU Certification Calls

For agencies receiving Fixed Credentialing Units as part of the USAccess transition process, please remember to schedule your Certification Call with a DXC engineer after receiving your equipment. These calls are required for the Fixed CU to become operational and should occur immediately after the equipment has been set up. Agency Site POCs are encouraged to schedule these calls as soon as possible to have maximum scheduling flexibility. An email was sent to Agency Leads with a document called “Scheduling a Certification Call” with more details, as well as the Fixed CU Setup Guide.
