(The name listed on the License WILL BE the name listed on the P/EVO Certification card. If your name has recently changed and you do not yet have an updated copy of your license, you will be required to show documentation that supports your request. If the instructor is unable to validate your request; you can update your P/EVO Certification once you are able to provide the proper documents. (Example: If you recently were married and have changed your name, bringing your marriage certificate will allow you to be certified using your new name.)
