EMS Education Coordinator Certification Program

All initial certification programs and category one CE programs must be coordinated by an EMS Education Coordinator (EC). This page contains information on the process and a link to the online Education Coordinator Candidate (ECC) application. Once the application is completed and approved by the Office of EMS, the provider can initiate the ECC program.

The next Education Coordinator Institute is scheduled for Wednesday, March 13th – Friday, March 15th 2019 in Augusta County. The deadline for an invitation to this institute is Wednesday, February 27th, 2019 at 8:00 AM. All requirements (cognitive exam, psychomotor exam, and mentorship) must be complete and documented in the candidate’s portal by the deadline. Education Coordinator Candidates currently in the process are encouraged to continue to make attempts at the cognitive and psychomotor exams while working through their mentorship.

Subsequent institutes will be scheduled as enough candidates complete the process. The next projected institute is in June 2019 in Blacksburg, VA pending sufficient candidates. More information on upcoming institutes will be made available as candidates complete the process and the time comes closer. Below is a graphic to help explain the process.
