What happens next after nomination?

Once a nomination from the network's editorial or advisory board has been received and the network/review editor's or advisory board member's application has been completed, they will be directed to begin their training by an H-Net officer. Once the training has been completed, the trainee's application is submitted directly to the H-Net Council for approval. Certification by the committee normally occurs one week after their application has been submitted for approval. Nominees are then notified of their appointment by an H-Net officer (usually the Associate Director of Networks), who also notifies the other network staff. Newly-appointed editors should always confirm their appointment with the on-duty or lead editor for their network. 

You cannot begin editing a network until after you have been notified that the Council has certified you as an editor.
