Certification

DASA Training Information Applicants for Certification

Effective December 31, 2013 all applicants for Certification are required to complete six clock hours of coursework or training in accordance with Article 2 Sections 10-18 of the Education Law. This training is available only from a provider approved by the New York State Education Department. 
Upon completion of the workshop, the provider will give you a Certification of Completion.

  • Send a copy of the Certificate of Completion to the Office of Teaching Initiatives, RM 5N 89 Washington Ave, Albany, NY 12234. Photocopies are acceptable.

  • In the case of persons completing State registered programs leading to Certification after December 31, 2013, no Certification of Completion will be awarded because the training is a required component of the programs. No additional training is required. 

Please note that some providers will be offering training that exceeds the six hour minimum. Also, fees vary from provider to provider.
