EMS Educational Institution Certification Requirements

In order to teach EMS educational courses in the District of Columbia, the institution must be certified by the Department of Health. Additionally, commercial educational facilities must be licensed through the DC Educational Licensure Commission (ELC).

To become a certified EMS Educational Institution in the District you must complete a Self-Assessment application and submit this to the District EMS Officer. Once it is reviewed, a site visit will be scheduled. During the site visit members of the EMS Division will insure that the facility is capable of being able to properly teach students in accordance with the EMS Educational Standards. For commercial facilities, you must have both a license to operate an educational facility from the ELC and a certification from DOH. We also provide a listing of all the currently certified EMS Educational Institutions in the District.
