Part 1: Medication Training 

- Due before August 25, 2018                                   (must be completed annually-not valid if completed prior to July 1, 2018)
Required for any staff member who may be administering medication to any student during any of the following circumstances:
  • Student may be carrying emergency medication in the classroom, and the School Nurse is not available
  • Student may require use of the stock EPI PEN from the front office to be administered by a staff member
  • Student may require daily or emergency medication while on a field trip
  • Student may require daily or emergency medication after school while on school property (sports, clubs, etc.)
  • Student may require daily or emergency medication during an athletic event
  • Student may require emergency medication while being transported home in a bus or school vehicle

Teachers, Principals, Assistants, Coaches, Bus Drivers, and any other staff who may be giving medication in any of the circumstances above are required to take this online training prior to Saturday, August 25th.  At the completion of the training, you will be given a certificate of completion that will need to be turned in to your School Nurse.  Upon receipt of the certificate, you will then complete a packet in lieu of the demonstration portion of the training.  Once the certificate and completed packet are both turned in to your school nurse, the requirements for this annual training according to KY state law will have been fulfilled. 

Teachers or staff who are new to the school setting (you have NEVER completed a medication training in the state of KY) do not have the option to complete the packet in place of the in-person demonstration portion; therefore, you must contact your School Nurse to schedule a time to complete this portion.    
You will find complete step by step instructions for completing this On-Line training below in the document, "Medication Training Online Instructions."  You will also find the entire PDF version of the Medication Administration Manual to download and use during your online course.  Feel free to use the manual when taking the final exam online, as you must score an 85% or greater to pass the course.  The exam will be very familiar, as many of you have taken this same exam multiple times over the course of the last several years in our in person trainings.
