Mandatory Teacher Certification Workshops

To become a certified teacher in New York state, candidates must complete three specific workshops, in addition to completing an approved preparation program and passing New York State Teacher Certification Exams (NYSTCE). Completion of certification workshops are both graduation and certification requirements. View upcoming workshops and register online through the Continuing Education website.

  • Workshop #1: Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)
  • Workshop #2: Safe Schools Against Violence in Education (Project SAVE)
  • Workshop #3: Child Abuse Identification and Reporting

Certificates of completion for DASA and Project SAVE will be sent to NYSED on your behalf, and you will see them posted to your TEACH account within two weeks. If you do not see proof of completion on TEACH, email Tracy Lyman.

Certificates of completion for Child Abuse must be mailed to NYSED directly.
