The amended NYS certification regulations now require that anyone applying for a classroom teaching, school service or administrative/supervisory certificate on or after December 31, 2013, to have completed at least six clock hours of coursework or training in Harassment, Bullying and Discrimination Prevention and Intervention. Of those six hours, three hours must be face to face.

May 2013 and Summer 2013 will not be required to complete the training if candidates apply and pay for their NYS Certification prior to December 31, 2013.  All May 2013 and Summer 2013 candidates that do not apply and pay prior to December 31, 2013, will need to submit proof of training prior to the issuance of their certificate, please see NYSED link here
