Below is the SUID/AHT training law that shows the changes that are now effective. The underlined portions is the new wording that is now in place and required.
Sec. 4. Minnesota Statutes 2013 Supplement, section 245A.50, subdivision 5, is amended to read:
Subd. 5.Sudden unexpected infant death and abusive head trauma training.
(a) License holders must document that before staff persons, caregivers, and helpers assist in the care of infants, they are instructed on the standards in section 245A.1435 and receive training on reducing the risk of sudden unexpected infant death. In addition, license holders must document that before staff persons, caregivers, and helpers assist in the care of infants and children under school age, they receive training on reducing the risk of abusive head trauma from shaking infants and young children. The training in this subdivision may be provided as initial training under subdivision 1 or ongoing annual training under subdivision 7.
(b) Sudden unexpected infant death reduction training required under this subdivision must address the risk factors related to sudden unexpected infant death, means of reducing the risk of sudden unexpected infant death in child care, and license holder communication with parents regarding reducing the risk of sudden unexpected infant death.
(c) Abusive head trauma training required under this subdivision must at a minimum, address the risk factors related to shaking infants and young children, means of reducing the risk of abusive head trauma in child care, and license holder communication with parents regarding reducing the risk of abusive head trauma.
(d) Training for family and group family child care providers must be developed by the commissioner in conjunction with the Minnesota Sudden Infant Death Center and approved by the Minnesota Center for Professional Development. Sudden unexpected infant death reduction training and abusive head trauma training may be provided in a single course of no more than two hours in length.
(e) Sudden unexpected infant death reduction training and abusive head trauma training required under this subdivision must be completed in person or as allowed under subdivision 10, clause (1) or (2), at least once every two years. On the years when the license holder is not receiving training in person or as allowed under subdivision 10, clause (1) or (2), the license holder must receive sudden unexpected infant death reduction training and abusive head trauma training through a video of no more than one hour in length. The video must be developed or approved by the commissioner.
This section is effective January 1, 2015.
As statute states above, there is the option to view the SUID/AHT videos during the ‘off-year’, when a certificate is not required. The videos are available for viewing on the DHS website at http://www.dhs.state.mn.us/main/idcplg?IdcService=GET_DYNAMIC_CONVERSION&RevisionSelectionMethod=LatestReleased&dDocName=dhs16_188848#
When you view the videos at the DHS website, you need to understand that this is NOT the ‘training’, there will be no certificate, and there is no training hours attributed to viewing these videos that can be applied towards your 16 ongoing hours for the year.
However, the actual training will produce a certificate, and can be applied towards your ongoing training requirements. You can take the training and apply the hours annually if you choose to.
A new option in order to obtain the required SUID/AHT training, in which you will receive a valid certificate, will be available online later this month. You can visit the Eager To Learn website, and find the SUID/AHT training through ‘AnyTime Learning’. The website to access this option is https://www.eagertolearn.org/Content/atl/Index.aspx
