To help professionals understand their duties as mandated reporters according to California law, TargetSolutions developed the all-new course: Child Abuse: Mandated Reporter Training for California (General).

While educators are the first to come to mind when you think about being a mandated reporter, many other professions are mandated to report as well. Most states, such as California, enforce laws that require certain professionals to report suspected cases of child abuse or neglect such as EMS providers, firefighters, law enforcement and less obvious professions such as dentists, funeral home directors, legal professionals, clergy etc.

To help professionals understand their duties as mandated reporters according to California law, TargetSolutions developed the all-new course: Child Abuse: Mandated Reporter Training for California (General).

Course Details and Benefits

The law encourages all persons to report cases of suspected child abuse or neglect, even if you are not mandated to do so. However, proper training to identify these cases is crucial as some instances of abuse or neglect are as obvious as others.

Delivered in video-driven lessons, this course highlights the key statistics, warning signs and courses of action for professionals in a variety of industries who suspect a child is being abused. While this course focuses on California law, Child Abuse: Mandated Reporter Training for California (General) covers essential information applicable to all potential reporters.
