Partnership for NYC School Safety

Science and STEM educators who handle hazardous chemicals and use them while in the laboratory when providing hands-on activities with their students must obtain an FDNY Certificate of Fitness. You can earn an FDNY Certificate of Fitness by completing an FDNY and NYCDOE recognized course that was created by Science Safety and reviewed by science safety specialist, Dr. Ken Roy.
