How does everyone go about staff training and documentation of staff training for:

Blood borne, Epi, common illnesses/emergencies (seizures, asthma), inhaler

I'm trying to find an easy way to institute this in my school and plan for next year since I'm starting in the middle of the year. I have heard of Safe Schools but I don't believe my school uses this. Is there any other online options for staff training to cover back to school?

I am in Texas my staff does online training provided by region 10.  The District has to take blood borne , asthma, hippa/ferpa, sexual harassment, concussion and several others every year.  Everything else is covered in CPR/First Aide everyone in my district is cpr certified.

I am not sure how it works. I am actually in region 12 but my district has always done these trainings.

Our district uses Safe Schools for everything - they set it up and we are given most of the summer to complete it before school starts - I think we get 8 hours of PD credit if done by the deadline.

The only thing I do is the hands on training for Epipens - I just made a google signin sheet and print out for my record keeping.  For the Epi Pen training - I made a quick powerpoint - takes about 15 minutes and I did it at our first staff meeting of the year.

I grab time in staff meetings for trainings and try to make them fun while they learn.  One way to assess them is to use the game Kahoot!  If you haven't tried this, you should.  My staff loves to play it and it really makes them remember the information.  Of course, they still have to take the test at the end so that I can document that they all passed but I feel the Kahoot! game helps to really drive it into their memory.

Our district uses an online training system that includes all of what you listed. 

I also conduct a formal training with the teachers (including specials teachers) and teachers aids for anaphylaxis/epi, diabetes, and seizures if they have students in their class with the chronic condition.

I do it during one of the first staff meetings of the year. (Not CPR or first aid, they can take that on their own thru the district). We have a sign in sheet that I keep all year.
