The M.A.Ed. program in gifted education is designed for teachers or administrators who already hold certification in early, middle, or secondary education or endorsement in at least one area of special education. The program is structured to provide students with an understanding of the unique cognitive and affective needs of gifted students, curriculum, and instruction to meet those needs as well as the processes for developing appropriate programs and services in the context of general or special education.
First Aid, CPR, and AED Training Licensure Requirement
Students seeking licensure in Virginia will need to complete training in emergency first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and the use of automated external defibrillators. Students will need to provide documentation of completion of this training, which is usually an official card. Training courses are offered by the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association.
