EMS Education Coordinator Certification Program

All initial certification programs and category one CE programs must be coordinated by a certified 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 has been scheduled and it will be held at Radford University Carilion–formerly known as Jefferson College of Health Sciences–in Roanoke, VA on Monday, July 22nd thru Wednesday, July 24th, 2019.  In order to be invited to attend an Education Coordinator Institute, EC Candidates must have ALL requirements (NREMT cognitive exam and mentorship) completed and documented in the Candidate’s Virginia EMS Portal by the deadline date.  EC Candidates currently in the process are encouraged to continue to make attempts at the NREMT cognitive exams while working through their mentorship.

Future institutes will be held in January*, June* and September* of 2020.  Details and invitations for future EC Institutes will be made available as we approach these dates and eligible candidates complete the EC mentorship process.

* Education Coordinator Institutes will be held pending there are enough eligible candidates in the pipeline to conduct an institute.  Institutes will not be conducted for less than 10 eligible, confirmed candidates.

The graphic below aims to help explain the process.
