Second-hand Smoke – Self Learning Module (2 hours)


Learn how to protect children from disease caused by smoke exposure.  Children exposed to second and third-hand smoke are sick more often. Electronic cigarettes and liquid nicotine are hazards for children too. Teach children about the hazards of second-hand smoke and how to avoid these hazards. Use the information and support materials to help smokers quit.  Submit the self-assessment for review by completing the online assessment,  scanning the pages and attaching them to an e-mail, or sending them by fax or by surface mail to ECELS. Be sure to follow the instructions in the “Important Reminders” box next to the list of self-learning modules on this webpage. (ECERS-ITERS: Personal Care Routines. K7.1 C1, K7.1 C2, K.4 C3; 2 hours credit. Meets STAR Level 2 Performance Standard for Health and Safety.)
