Additional Required Trainings
New York State requires all applicants for teaching certification to have completed the following prior to application (as of July 1, 2013)
- At least two clock hours of coursework or training regarding the identification and reporting of suspected child abuse or maltreatment (in accordance with requirements of section 3004 of the Education Law).
- At least two clock hours of coursework or training in school violence prevention and intervention (also known as S.A.V.E) (as required by section 3004 of the Education Law).
- At least six clock hours of coursework or training in harassment, bullying and discrimination prevention and intervention (also known as DASA: Dignity for All Students Act) (as required by section 14 of Education Law).
How to satisfy these requirements if you are enrolled in SUNY Oneonta education programs:
All those who have successfully completed EDUC 213 from Fall 2013 on will have met all the aforementioned requirements.
Important Note: If you successfully completed EDUC 213:Education Law requirements Related to Health and Safety Issues at SUNY Oneonta PRIOR to the Fall 2013 semester, you have already completed the Child Abuse Recognition/Reporting and Violence Prevention requirements for certification. You will still need, however, the DASA training prior to application for certification.
If you are still in need of any of the aforementioned required seminars, please contact the Office of Education Advisement and Field Experience for more information.
Please also note: When the college recommends you for certification, they attest that you have taken all three required trainings. Having your certification is proof that you have met all the state requirements. Please note that your DASA training (along with your S.A.V.E. and Mandated Child Abuse Training) may NOT be reflected on your TEACH account. This does not mean that you have not met the requirement.
If a school district requires proof beyond that of your certification that you have taken the DASA, S.A.V.E. or Mandated Child Abuse training, you have the paper copy of your certificate of completion to show them. If you do not have this, please contact the Office of Education Advisement and Field Experience.
Complete the DASA Training through a NY State Approved Provider
All questions regarding these specific trainings must be directed to the approved provider. Once completed, submit a copy of your DASA Certification of Completion to The Office of Education & Advisement & Field Experience.
