Here are the most frequently asked questions about TargetSolutions’ updates to comply with AB 1432.
Does TargetSolutions’ Online Training Meet the California Department of Education’s AB 1432 Requirement?
Yes. TargetSolutions’ Reporting Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of Children course has been updated to comply with employees’ obligations under the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA).

Is This Course Applicable for Educators?
Yes. This course meets the General requirements for all “mandated reporters,” basically any employee who has contact with children. Also, please note additional position specific “mandated reporter” training is available through the California Department of Social Services.
How Do I Report This Course to the California Department of Education (CDE) as “Alternative Training Provided for Mandatory Reporters”?
