Mandatory Training:
According to Wis. Stat. sec. 118.29, Wisconsin school personnel and volunteers must be trained and found competent before administering certain medications to students.. The knowledge (webcasts) training and assessment tests are to be completed at least every four years, while the skills competency check-off should be completed annually.  While most medication is given in the healthroom, school staff may need to give a student a medication on a field trip or in the classroom.
