Mandated Reporter Training: Identifying and Reporting Child Abuse and Maltreatment

Mandated reporters can participate in this 2-hour web-based online training course at any time, 24/7. Users must complete the course within the course duration which is the current calendar year. Progress is saved at the end of each section, so you can complete it at your own pace. Please be advised that the Office of Children and Family Services now requires all mandated reporters to take a short multiple choice test both before and after the mandated reporter training. Users will need to complete the posttest to be marked as having completed the course and to access their certificate, if needed. The results of the test are for informational purposes only and will not affect user’s ability to access their certificate. Users learn definitions, indicators, and how to make a report to the New York Statewide Central Register. The course is user friendly and fully narrated.

This course meets the New York State Education Department mandatory requirements for Training in Child Abuse Identification and Reporting.
