Strong concern.  Faculty are not in agreement with the following being the responsibility of the EEPs, and 

Strongly suggest that this information be handled by schools districts/employers who can ensure that it is renewed periodically “complete training or certification in emergency first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and the use of automated external defibrillators."

General Support for this regulation.

Clarification is needed as to when candidates are required to submit evidence of their accreditation for training.  Currently, this is in the course EDSE 501, Intro to SPED. However, not all students take this course. Also, students are in schools for field experiences prior to internship.

Further, clarification is needed with regard to what the state implies by “demonstrate proficiency.” Will this be a state developed test or developed by individual IHEs?
