All students taking a practicum course are required to complete Situational Awareness Training. This training is to provide you with an awareness of safety issues that may arise in a practicum placement. The training must be completed, and the competency quiz taken and passed, BEFORE you start your practicum placement. This training only needs to be taken one time. If you have already taken the training, you do NOT have to take it again.
The entire training takes approximately 2 ½ hours. The training has been broken into 4 modules, so you do not have to view the entire training in one sitting. After completing the training you must take the competency quiz, and pass the quiz with a minimum grade of 70%.
The instructions for enrolling in the Situational Awareness Training located in Canvas are here: Situational Awareness Training Enrollment Instructions (PDF).
All students must also complete the Safety in Practicum Student Checklist for each practicum placement. This checklist is to be discussed with your agency field instructor, signed by the field instructor, and turned in to your practicum course professor. You may download a copy of the checklist here: Safety in Practicum Student Checklist (PDF).
