“Youth Suicide Prevention for Educators.” This 8-part course consists of 30-minute modules that satisfy the needs of Act 71 of 2014, requiring a minimum of four hours of training on suicide prevention every five years. This series was developed in collaboration with the Delaware County Intermediate Unit. Each class within this larger course consists of a pre-quiz, video training module, and post-quiz. You may complete as many of the 8 classes as you would like. Each will show up on your Prevent Suicide PA Online Learning Center transcript. Additionally, if you complete all of the 8 classes, you may print a certificate indicating the number of hours completed to submit to your employer or school district.
