Training and Certification

All responders who deploy to Israel must be certified by EVP, which means they have completed all required training, hold valid certification(s) according to their professional status, and are ready for deployment.  A certified responder is defined as one who has, over the period of one year, completed the following requirements:

  1. Meets all EVP volunteer requirements for their area of service
  2. Completes annual training requirements in the United States
  3. Passed EVP's annual volunteer review
  4. Meets EVP’s standards of conduct

 

EVP Training

In order to train the responder for their tasks in Israel, EVP has implemented requirements for multiple levels of training.  Training requirements are defined below for each level and area of service.  Training certifications held at a higher level than required supersede lower skill requirements (e.g., basic first aid is not required for those who hold EMT, paramedic, etc. certifications).
