you need to appeal directly to the certification provider to explain the issue. You should not have to stalk all your old supervisors the rest of their lives.

Not to be dishonest, but it's really the 'honor system' for most of these types of requirements.

Legally, a former employer is only going to disclose when you worked there, and possibly your title. If a former co-worker at the old company signs the form that says you have five years of PM experience, there is no legal way for anyone on the outside to validate the truth or prove the lie.

I am not suggesting that you do something unethical, but rather suggesting that you should not give up easily the experience that you earned, simply because your former boss has:

a) died a mysterious death one day after you quit.

b) gone into the witness protection program

c) joined the French Foreign Legion

d) all of the above
