Requirements for EHRA certificated cardiac device specialists for Allied Professionals (ECDSAP)

Certification for AP will only require the written exam on iPAD device.

The examination is designed to be completed in 2 consecutive parts 3 hours each, with a 60 minute lunch break:

  • 09:00 - 12:00: 1st part
  • 12:00 - 13:00: Lunch break (lunch is provided by EHRA)
  • 13:00 - 16:00: 2nd part

EHRA reserves the right to modify the above schedule if required. If traveling after the exam, we strongly recommend candidates to plan for after exam late flights (not before 8:00 pm).

Participants are required to sign in at least 30 minutes before the start of the exam for check-in and to present:

  • Their information letter (sent during registration process)
  • Identity card/Passport to confirm their identity

After the exam participants will have to hand in all their exam material and sign out.

The questionnaire is compiled by the EHRA Certification Committee for AP, and consists of a 130 multiple-choice questions.

Questions are based on the analysis of practical clinical cases and decision making (60-80%), with the remaining dedicated to theoretical questions. 10 questions out of the 130 are back up questions and are used only for internal processes.

There is no appeal procedure after the examination. Candidates who have failed the exam cannot re-sit the exam before a period of time of 11 months.

Exam results are sent by email 2 months after the exam is sat.
Upon successful completion of the exam, candidates will receive an ECDSAP Certificate valid for 10 years. 

As skills can only be maintained by continued education and practical involvement, certification is granted for a period of 10 years. Afterwards, they can renew their certification by re-sitting the exam.
