Certification and Licensing Workshops

New York State Law requires many licensed professionals, teachers and school administrators applying for the renewal of a license, registration, certificate or limited permit to complete coursework regarding child abuse, DASA and school violence. To satisfy these requirements, SPD offers the following NYSED-approved workshops:

Workshops required of all teachers and administrators:
  • Training in Identifying and Reporting Suspected Cases of Child Abuse and Maltreatment 
  • Identification and Referral of Substance Abuse (SBU Teacher Candidates Only)
  • Project Save (Prevention and Intervention of School Violence) 
  • Dignity for All Students Act (Training in Harassment, Bullying and Discrimination Prevention and Intervention) 
Workshops required of all Students with Disabilities candidates; optional for others. 
  • Autism Workshop  

Fingerprinting is also required for licensed professionals. » Instructions on how to obtain fingerprinting.

If you are a Stony Brook graduate student seeking certification, you should refer to your program page for workshop and examination requirements:
