Step 5) UPLOAD DOCUMENTS: On the right side of the browser, you will find the Documents Uploader. Please upload all required documentation to complete your application for certification.

INSTRUCTIONS TO UPLOAD REQUIRED DOCUMENTS:

  • For required documents which an applicant can supply themselves, the documents must be scanned into a PDF file. Click here to go to "My Documents Uploader" (or choose it in the menu on the right side of this page). The applicant will choose the Program the documents pertain to and the Requirement they fulfill from the drop-down lists.

    Although an applicant may upload a copy of the notarized letter, the original notarized document is required to be mailed to the National Board of Echocardiography to complete the requirement. The original notarized letter must be mailed to the address below:

    National Board of Echocardiography
    1500 Sunday Dr.
    Suite 102
    Raleigh, NC 27607

This letter must be signed, dated, notarized, and on official letterhead. The notarized letter will not be accepted as only a scanned upload, and must be post mailed to complete this requirement. A scanned copy may be uploaded for this requirement to begin review; however, the applicant will not be complete until the original notarized letter is received by the National Board of Echocardiography. The Applicant may mail this OR the Program Director may mail this letter directly.

  • The documents do not have to be uploaded in order. Please carefully review the appropriate handbooks to ensure completion of appropriate requirements.

How to Track Progress:

An applicant may track the progress of any submitted documentation by finding the Certifications tab, and clicking Continue in your Program out of the drop down menu.

The applicant may click the hyperlink ‘View Progress’ for the appropriate application.

Requirements will be listed as Required, in Progress, or Complete.

Once the documents have been reviewed, the status will change to ‘In Progress’ per each requirement. If requirements are missing, or further verification is required, notifications will be emailed to the email address on file.

Once an application is complete and the original notarized letter is received and reviewed by NBE staff, the status will be noted as ‘Complete’. This indicates the application is complete for Committee review at the next Certification Committee meeting. Please note that Certification Committee meetings are held twice a year. Applicants will receive notification of the decision of the committee within 12 months.

How to view current submitted documentation:

An applicant may view previously submitted documents in the My Document Uploader.
