Required Workshops (Project S.A.V.E. and Child Abuse Identification)
In order to be certified to teach in New York State, all students pursuing a teacher education degree must participate in two workshops: the School Violence Prevention and Intervention Workshop (Project S.A.V.E.) and the Child Abuse Identification Workshop. These workshops should be taken within your last two semesters of your degree program. You can enroll in these workshops through the LIU Post School of Continuing Education at 516-299-2236 or www.liu.edu/cwpost/ce. The courses ($35 each) are usually offered on Fridays once each month throughout the year.
