Required suicide prevention training available

SafeSchools Training provides a state approved Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention training, which becomes a certificate requirement effective on July 1, 2017.


The Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention training requirement comes from the passage of 2016’s Senate Bill 129, which establishes certain suicide awareness and prevention training requirements for certain school employees.


South Dakota’s training requirement includes a minimum of one hour of suicide awareness and prevention training as a requirement for the initial certificate and renewal certificate of a teacher, administrator, or other educational professional.


SafeSchools Training meets the 1 hour requirement of training for all teachers, administrators and other education professionals needing a certificate of renewal.
