After completing the portfolio, you add all the requested attachments and send them to DUO for review and you can expect a response about 6 weeks after submission. It is best to be patient and take the time neccessary to compile a thourough and descriptive portfolio. Trying to rush it usually ends up in having to do the whole portfolio again, with another 6 week waiting time.
The interview phase, starts with a formal appointment with DUO that you need to initiate. Approach this in a professional manner as you would in a proffesional environment. While waiting for your interview, remember to thoughrougly prepare for it by studying your portfolio by heart.
