This is the only documentation of successful course completion that will be accepted for department-approved courses offered by private agencies taken after July 1, 2000*. (this has been amended as of Sept. 1, 2010) Successful completion of entry-level classes taken at technical schools will be documented on a transcript. High school courses that meet the entry-level training requirements will result in a certificate issued by the Department of Public Instruction—a grade report or high school transcript is not sufficient. A person holding a DPI paraprofessional or teacher aide license will need to document that they have complete the appropriate entry level training.
