Another school year is getting ready to begin and with it another year of the Florida Statewide Tobacco Prevention Course for Public School Teachers and Guidance Counselors. The course was originally developed for Palm Beach County Schools and after three years was taken to the state level. This marks its fifth year in existence and the second year it has been offered at the state level. Over 900 teachers registered last year for the free course, and many of those were able to receive continuing education units toward recertification.
This year you can do the same by going to www.tobaccopreventiontraining.org and registering. Registration begins Monday, August 1, 2011. You will need to know your Florida Dept. of Education teacher certificate number when you register. We look forward to having another great year.
