WVDE Offers Online OTC Medication Administration Training Program

August 17, 2004

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The West Virginia Department of Education is pleased to make the Over-the-Counter (OTC) Medication Administration Training Program available to all schools online. The registration site for the Administrator’s Designee can be located at http://wvde.state.wv.us/otc/  

Each school administrator will need to register his/her selected designee(s) online to take the Over-the-Counter Medication Administration Training. The administrator will need to provide the following registration information about the designee:  

• First name • Last name • Designee’s email address • School of employment • County of employment  

The designee will receive an email from the WVDE Training Administrator with directions and an access code for the training site. The training consists of a Power Point presentation regarding over-the-counter medication administration procedures and an exam. At the end of the exam the computer will score the exam and deliver immediate feedback regarding successful completion. The designee will need to print off the results as verification of completion and may request a certificate of completion.  

This program will also allow the designee to participate in bi-monthly forums offered by the WVDE to discuss general questions related to the administration of OTCs in the school setting. All student/situation specific questions should be dealt with by contacting parents/guardians and health care providers when needed.  

If you have any questions regarding this training process, please contact Rebecca King, Coordinator, Office of Student Services and Health Promotion at (304) 558-8830 or email rjking@access.k12.wv.us.
