The University of Northern Iowa will starts its Driver Education Endorsement program in the fall 2014. The program allows teachers to earn the endorsement by completing nine credits over two semesters.
Licensed secondary teachers who finish the courses will be qualified to teach both the classroom and behind-the-wheel components of driver education. The endorsement program is offered using Adobe Connect, an interactive desktop video conferencing system, which includes in-car and in-person experiences as arranged.
Course subjects include accident prevention, drug and alcohol abuse, vehicle safety and behind-the-wheel driving.
Elementary teachers who have at least two years of teaching experience may meet the secondary student teaching requirement by completing the Experience in Safety Education course and providing a letter documenting the number of years of classroom experience.
