The Safety/Driver’s Education endorsement program is designed to prepare teachers to add a safety/driver’s education endorsement to their teaching license. Illinois rules and regulations, injury prevention and safety, correcting driving errors, emergency driving procedures, first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and laboratory driving experiences are emphasized. Candidates who complete the following 24 hours of required coursework through Olivet Nazarene University’s program may add the Safety/Driver’s Education endorsement to an existing 9-12 Professional Educator License through entitlement. Candidates who do not complete the entire program at Olivet Nazarene University should apply for an added endorsement through the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
