If you are an individual with a Visa or green card but do not possess a United States social security number, this page is for you. Foreign nationals are required to:
- Contact Debbie Akers via e-mail (email@example.com) and provide a copy of the foreign national’s Visa and/or green card for further guidance.
- The Office of EMS will review and verify the foreign national’s eligibility to enroll in training/education programs in the United States.
- After review, OEMS will contact the foreign national by e-mail with an “eligible” for “not eligible” notice.
- If eligible, OEMS will assign a fictitious SSN for the foreign national to use to enroll electronically in an EMS training program via the Virginia EMS Portal.
Question? Please reach out to Debbie Akers via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
