In addition to the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, TargetSolutions’ online police training is accepted by the following organizations: Florida Division of Criminal Justice, Georgia POST, Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, Iowa Law Enforcement Academy, Louisiana POST, Missouri POST, Nevada POST, New Jersey Police Training Commission, New York State Division of Criminal Justice Service, North Dakota POST, Oklahoma Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training, and the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement.
California Assembly Bills 2053 and 1432 go into effect Jan. 1 and TargetSolutions is making updates to its coursework to comply with the new regulations.
To conform with AB 2053, which aims to prevent abusive conduct in the workplace, TargetSolutions has revised its Sexual Harassment for Supervisors training for clients in California. To fulfill AB 1432, which requires annual training of mandated reporters, TargetSolutions will release its updated Reporting Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of Children during the month of January.
“Whenever we see a major change in law or standard, affecting one of our courses, we ensure our material is up-to-date and compliant with these changes – ensuring they are timely and relevant for our clients,” said TargetSolutions’ Strategic Risk Management Business Unit Manager Kelly Zielinski.
CA AB 2053
This new law amends California’s sexual harassment training law, AB 1825, to include specific training and education on abusive conduct – often referred to as bullying. This mandatory biennial training is required for all supervisors working in an organization employing more than 50 individuals. To comply with AB 2053, TargetSolutions updated Sexual Harassment Awareness for Supervisors (California AB 1825), as well as Sexual Harassment Awareness for Supervisors (California AB 1825 – EDU), to meet the new requirements.
In addition to updating its web-based sexual harassment prevention training, TargetSolutions has uploaded a document to Community Resources summarizing the bill that can be attached to a course. Please search any of the following terms in Community Resources to locate the document: AB 1825, AB 2053, California, sexual harassment, bullying, workplace bullying, abusive conduct.
Note: If you completed this course after Oct. 21, the new amendment lesson was included in your training.
CA AB 1432
This new law requires school districts and other state educational institutions to annually train employees on their duties under the child abuse reporting laws. TargetSolutions will supplement its Reporting Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of Children course with information to comply with employees’ obligations under the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA).
CANRA requires all “mandated reporters,” basically any employee who has contact with children, to file a report with local law enforcement or county welfare departments whenever they witness or learn of abuse. In the past, CANRA did not require this training.
If you have any questions about TargetSolutions’ updates to comply with CA AB 2053 or CA AB 1432, please contact us at (800) 840-8048.
