||Approving new assessors
We welcome anyone with the
appropriate expertise to apply to become an assessor and to contribute
to the species assessments. Anyone can apply by completing the short
registration form by clicking the "Sign
up to get started!" button on the Home page. When a new
request has been submitted, it will appear on the Approve a Request from
a New Assessor panel on the
My Dashboard page when you login to the
program. All new assessors must be approved by the appropriate national
facilitator. This approval process ensures that all assessors have
appropriate expertise, resulting in assessments and possible
conservation actions that are of the
highest possible quality.
Each time you login to the program, you should check for any new
requests from people with expertise in your country.
The list of new requests will show anyone who has requested to become an
assessor within the last three months. Requests that have not yet been
approved show up at the top of the list, followed by other assessors who
have recently been approved:

Please click the Approve link, to approve the request, if it comes from
someone with expertise in the amphibians in your country, and if you
know that the person has the appropriate expertise. Please do not
approve people who’s expertise you are not sure of, or people whose
expertise is not in your country.
If you are unsure of a person’s expertise, please contact them using the
email address they have provided, so you can discuss their area of
expertise, before you approve their request.
When you approve a new assessor, a welcome email is automatically sent
to them letting them know that their request has been approved. They are
then able to
add new species assessments.
