Sign-off of your competencies is a new section we have built into the myAPCDiary to develop and enhance engagement between the candidate and their supervisor and counsellor.  From the supervisor and counsellor perspective we have made it simple to monitor and review each candidate you are overseeing and the sign-off is an opportunity to discuss and verify competency and level progress.
How do I electronically get things signed off? How do I sign off manually? 

As you may expect, you will need some evidence to sign-off so we have designed the myAPC Diary to manage the competency achievement through the Summary of Experience and the Sign-Off section.  As soon as you have written up your competency levels in the Summary of i_iPhoneExperience you may send an electronic request to your supervisor and counsellor to either review and confirm electronically or wait until you next meet and manually sign off progress.

The physical activity or requesting or signing off competency achievement is done in the simple to use Sign-Off section.
