ATTENTION ALL PRACTICUM STUDENTS AND STUDENT TEACHERS
This is to inform you that the following documentation must be submitted to the Center for Professional Development before you begin your student teaching or Practicum experience:
- You are required to complete the Emergency First Aid, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), and Use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED) training. You may get this training from the American Heart Association, American Red Cross, or one of our local hospital facilities. An online program to meet this requirement is offered by the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross. Any course taken through a community college or university must include all three components: first aid, CPR, and AED before it is accepted.
Online training or certification that includes emergency first aid, CPR, and the use of AEDs are accepted if based on the current national evidence-based emergency cardiovascular care guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of automated external defibrillator, such as a program developed by the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross.
- You will have to get a Universal Background check report.
Once these items are completed, please submit the documents to Dr. June M. Montgomery, Director, Center for Professional Development.
