Become a QM Certified Peer Reviewer

There are two ways you can participate as a QM Certified Peer Reviewer.

  1. You can choose to be an internal peer reviewer, participating on course peer review teams only at UNF.
  2. You can aim to become a national peer reviewer, eligible to participate not only on internal teams, but external course review teams at other institutions across the country.


All QM Peer Reviewers

To become a QM certified peer reviewer you must:


National QM Peer Reviewers

If you want to get involved with conducting external (national) QM reviews with teams at other institutions you must also:

  • Have taught online within the last 18 months. If not, you must complete the Exemption section of the application documenting your qualifications for being a Peer Reviewer.
  • Submit the Memorandum of Understanding, and resubmit annually (by updating information in MyQM.)
