The Center for Autism and Related Disabilities in Albany is pleased to announce it is now offering the required 3-hour autism training course, "Responding to the Needs of Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders," in an online format.
The NYS Education Department now requires that all persons applying for a teaching certificate or a license as a special education teacher, in addition to all the other certification or licensing requirements, complete a 3-hour course in the area of children with autism. Individuals mandated to take this course in order to be certified or licensed as a special education teacher can now register for and take this course from the convenience of their personal computer at any time. Individuals must register and pay the course fee ($75). Once payment and registration are processed, CARD Albany will send the registrant the webinar link and a password to access the training. Registrants should be able to log in and take the training from their personal computer.
*Please allow 48 business hours for registration information to be processed.
*If possible, please use a personal email address. If you are using an email linked to a public school system's server, the firewall may block your access.
