Default Urgent ptal - california help: L6 format

Hi, I'm applying to the residency now, and at the same time applying to PTAL (I have SSN). My main 2 questions are, hope you guys can help me bacuse I tried to called California boards and das to wait like 1 hour holding without sucess.

1) The format L6: Certificate of Individual Clinical clerkship training, says if i have been training in other part outside my univ hosp. Hello!!! I have done 10 clerkships around the world and 6 in the US, that means (each one for a month) that means that i have to ask all my supervisors to fill that format? even if one of them is in greece? or this just not apply in my case?

2) I plan de send all the documents on sept 15 th, when do i need to have the PTAL ready? I have heard before jan 15th, that is when the programs rank the applicants?

Please, help me.
