J1 Extension While J1 Waiver Pending

I’m currently holding a J visa from ECFMG which will expire October 7. I’m in the process of getting a J1 waiver through the Conrad 30 program. I know I need the H1B visa before I can start the waiver job but I’m worried that my J1 will expire before I get the waiver. Can I extend the J1?

Yes, the ECFMG should be able to extend your DS-2019. This goes for all J1 visa sponsors, not only the ECFMG.
