Seizure Training for School Personnel

What is Seizure Training for School Personnel?

The program provides teachers and other school personnel with information needed to recognize seizures, respond with appropriate first aid, and understand the impact seizures have on students. It is for elementary, middle, and secondary school staff, including teachers, administrators, cafeteria workers, security guards, custodians, or anyone else that will come in contact with students.

How long is the program?

It is 60 minutes long, but you can leave and come back; the program will save your progress. You will take a short test before the program just to see how much you currently know about seizures and epilepsy, and one following the program to see how much you’ve learned. It is important to listen to all of the content and not skip sections or lose attention – this is for the safety of students and staff alike so it is in your best interest to focus.

Can I earn continuing education credits for the program?

Yes! School personnel who complete the program and score an 80% or better on the test that follows the lesson can earn 0.1 ANSI/IACET Continuing Education Units, or 0.1 Category I Continuing Education contact hours for Certified Health Education Specialists through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). More information on obtaining Continuing Education Credits will be located later in the program.
