Choose from any SAPP courses marked “(CPS)” to complete at least 4 additional credits in general prevention topics. The UO class schedule marks CPS courses with the letter “d” in the notes section.
ACCBO requires at least 24 hours in the ATOD Prevention Education educational category. SAPP does not currently provide this requirement; however, SAPP is currently working with community partners to incorporate these required trainings into SAPP curricula. Therefore, these hours must be completed via CEU trainings offered in the community.
