API Reference (API Version 2017-01-17)

AssociateQualificationWithWorker

Description

The AssociateQualificationWithWorker operation gives a Worker a Qualification. AssociateQualificationWithWorker does not require that the Worker submit a Qualification request. It immediately gives the Worker the Qualification.

You can only assign a Qualification of a Qualification type that you created (using the CreateQualificationType operation).

Tip

AssociateQualificationWithWorker does not affect any pending Qualification requests for the Qualification by the Worker. If you associate a Qualification to a Worker, then later accept a Qualification request made by the Worker, accepting the request may modify the Qualification score. To resolve a pending Qualification request without affecting the Qualification the Worker already has, reject the request with the RejectQualificationRequest operation.
