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.

In order to be invited to attend an Education Coordinator Institute, EC Candidates must have ALL requirements (e.g. teaching hours, 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.
