Once you have sent an application to NESA an AP (approved person) will contact you (within 2 – 3 weeks) to make an appointment to finalise the application. However, the process can take up to three months, depending on the time of year you apply (the end of the year and the beginning of the year are always the busiest).
You are not required to send in documentation prior to the appointment although it is often requested by the AP. If you do choose to send your documentation in make sure you specify that your documentation is private and not for sharing.
After registration is approved it will take about a week before your official NSW Homeschool Certificate arrives in the mail.
