Only an institution’s Designated Institutional Official (DIO) can request that a new TPL be added to EVNet. The DIO must complete and sign the Request to Add a New Training Program Liaison (TPL) before scanning and e-mailing it to EVNetadmin@ecfmg.org. Upon receipt of the DIO’s request, ECFMG will e-mail the prospective TPL with instructions to:
- Review a PowerPoint tutorial outlining the role and responsibilities of a TPL, the goals and objective of the J-1 program, and guidelines for ECFMG J-1 sponsorship.
- Return a required acknowledgement form confirming completion of the tutorial.
Once the acknowledgement form is received by ECFMG, the new TPL will be sent instructions for creating an EVNet account.
