Form Need help for form 186

I am aplying for step 1.I have completed the online part of the form and payed the fees. Now i got the certfication of identification to print.
I got 2 forms one is Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) - Certification by Medical School Official and another is Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) - Certification by Notary Public and Medical School Official. and there is instruction written that Because your medical school does not participate in EMSWP, you are able to complete either a "Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) - Certification by Medical School Official" or a "Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) - Certification by Notary Public and Medical School Official."
So which one is better to print? i printed the first one Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) - Certification by Medical School Official. Is this ok?
And the second thing is that in this form we need our signature with date and official signature with date. along with it there is a space and written Print Name and Official Title. What does it mean? it mean that we have to write with hands the name and official title in capital letters or we have to type or print the name and official title???
And there is another space . under that space it is written institution. does it means to write the name of the institution where the medical official person is working. but it is obvious that the institution is our our medical school, then why they are asking it? Do we have to write the name of our medical school in the space given for the institution?

As far as I know is that you should print out the form that have to be signed by the Notary Public and the Medical School Official.
You don't need to write anything in the blanks that are assigned for the Medical School Official and you should leave them for your Medical School Official to fill out. Of course they'll write the name of your University, School, ..etc in where it asks for the institution.

Get the notary public / school official form, sign it by Notary Public and then send it to your medical school.

However, don't take my word. The best thing is to call ECFMG first thing tomorrow morning and ask them specifically about all your concerns and they will guide you.

PS: when you get the ECFMG answer please post it here in this thread so that others can benefit from it.
