Find a Mentor

The process of achieving your AVECCTN Credential is a lengthy, involved, pressure-filled marathon.  Many of our members have found the help of a mentor invaluable on their journey: from the application process, through the months of exam preparation, and in their VTS (ECC) careers.  AVECCTN has several members available to mentor candidates, all over the world.  These mentors have been through the process and know the pressures and pitfalls of the application, examination, and beyond and are happy to help you on your path.

The Mentor Committee Chairs work to pair mentors and candidates who are geographically close to help facilitate meetings and communication. 

Mentors have lots of experience to share and are great resources but it’s important to remember that the mentoring relationship is driven by the mentee.  It is up to the mentee to communicate with the mentor what they need: whether it’s help with skills mastery, reviewing case reports, or help with studying exam topics, mentors are invaluable sources of knowledge, support and inspiration.

If you think you would benefit from having a mentor, please fill in this form.  The form will be submitted to the Mentor Chairs so they can get started on matching you up!

Once matched, please sign this Mentorship Disclaimer.

The verbiage for the mentorship disclaimer appears below:

The Mentor-Mentee relationship is supported by AVECCTN and is intended to provide assistance to candidates throughout the application and examination process. 

AVECCTN Mentors are volunteer members of the AVECCTN Mentorship Committee, and have no official training other than having successfully completed the application requirements and passing the AVECCTN Examination. 

AVECCTN is not responsible for the accuracy, currency, completeness or reliability of any advice, opinions, statements or content supplied by mentors.  It is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure that they fulfill all the applications requirements, and prepare for the examination. 

AVECCTN, the AVECCTN Mentorship Committee, nor the AVECCTN Mentors, make any claim that alignment with the mentor committee will assure a successful outcome in the application or examination process, and are not liable for failure to successfully complete either stage of the AVECCTN application process.
