What are the requirements of this training?

As mandated by the New York State Education Department (NYSED), this training consists of two 3-hour portions. Due to the social distancing guidelines set forth by New York State during the COVID-19 crisis, we are offering both portions online until August 31, 2020. Part One of the online portion contains four Modules, each requiring a score of 80% or better on the quiz to proceed and successfully complete the training. Part One must be completed successfully before you will receive access to Part Two. Part Two of the online portion also contains four Modules. Brief written assessments in Module 2, 3, and 4 in Part Two and a feedback summary in SurveyMonkey are required to be completed successfully. Once both portions are completed, for a total of 6-hours, you will receive a Certificate of Completion which will also be submitted electronically to NYSED.

How do I access the online portion of the training?

  1. Register as a new user to be enrolled in the course. You will receive a link to do this in your registration confirmation email.
  2. Be sure to write down your username and password in case you don't complete the course in one sitting.
  3. After completing Part One (3-hour online session) successfully, we will send you a link to complete Part Two (3-hour online session, which was previously offered face to face). 

How will I know that I have successfully completed the online training?

Once you have completed all of the online modules (Parts One and Two) and submitted your feedback survey, you will receive an email from the Alberti Center (please allow one to two business days) confirming that you have successfully completed the course and we will request the necessary information for your Certificate of Completion. 

How will I show that I have completed the training?

Alberti Center staff will submit your completion of the course electronically to the New York State Education Department to be included under "workshops" on your TEACH account. We highly recommend that you also keep a copy of the certificate for your records.
