Medication Administration Training

As of January 31, 2005, all child care providers choosing to administer medication (with the exception of over-the-counter topical ointments, sunscreen, and insect repellent) are required to successfully complete the approved Medication Administration Training (MAT).

We encourage everyone who plans to administer medications to children in their care to get the appropriate training as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Please note: First Aid & CPR are required to complete the MAT certification. View our Professional Development Schedule to register. MAT is a two-day training.

The SUNY Medication Administration Training Grant Program modality specific information is now available at University of Albany Early Childhood Education and Training Program.
