My name is Michael Chiappone, LCSW I am the Director of CHI Professional Development. CHI Professional Development is an NYS Approved Provider for the Dignity for All Student Act (DASA). Feel free to check the NYS website HERE. We are also an approved Continuing Education provider for Social Workers and LMHCs.
Traditionally the course is offered entirely online. Due to COVID-19, the NYS Education Department has waived this and has permitted me to offer the entire course online. Feel free to read the letter HERE.
Please note that you can start when you'd like and take as many breaks as you'd like!
The course fee is $100. You can begin the class at any time and take as many breaks as you'd like. You will need your name as it appears on your TEACH account, address and the last 5 digits of your Social Security number. This information is needed so I can upload your completion of the course to the NYS TEACH website.
Once you have completed the course and passed the exam, you will get a certificate of completion. I will then upload your information to your NYS TEACH account, and NYS will update your account.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Michael Chiappone, LCSW
