Are there other requirements before I begin field education?

All students must complete their student pages in the IPT Field Placement database prior to registering for a practicum course. Students will receive individual log-in information from the Field Office. Additionally, all students must sign permission for, and submit to, a criminal background check. Forms are located on the CoSW Field Education website.

All students must take the Situational Awareness Training online, and pass the competency exam, before beginning a practicum placement. Directions are on the CoSW Field Education
website.

Note: if you are an advanced standing student who completed the situational awareness component as a UK undergraduate, you will not need to repeat the training.
