EACVI individual certification programmes

Mutual recognition

Individuals who are echo-certified with a national society that is mutually recognised will only have to sit and pass the corresponding EACVI exam and will not have to submit a logbook in order to be fully EACVI certified. 

More information about mutual recognition.

Laboratory accreditation

EACVI Lab Accreditation raises quality standards of practice and equipment across Europe in a uniform manner. It also serves as an educational tool to improve the overall quality of the laboratories.

Accreditation is available in transthoracic (TTE), transoesophageal (TOE), and stress echocardiography (SE) for echocardiographic laboratories, as well as cardiovascular magnetic resonance. Read more.
