Spinal Screening Announcement from DSHS

Spinal Screening Announcement from DSHS

There will be no in-person Spinal Screening trainings conducted by DSHS Staff for the remainder of 2020.

Therefore, we are providing training virtually, until we can conduct in-person certification. For those without a current certification, we will provide participants with a provisional certification valid through December 31, 2021. These participants will not be required to do the practicum portion of the training at this time. However, they will need to sign up for an in-person spinal training class and will have the practicum at that time before their provisional certification expires. Those needing to be recertified for spinal, classes are provided online only for those whose certifications are current and will expire on December 31, 2020.   

Please direct requests for spinal screening trainings to Sylvia Millsap at Sylvia.Millsap@dshs.texas.gov.
