Child Abuse Reporting (Mandated) (3 Hrs)

All health-related licensed professionals and funeral directors, who are licensed through the Department of State, are required under ACT 31 of 2014 in PA to receive 3 hours of training on Mandated Reporting as a condition of renewal for their license.  This training is approved by the Department of Public Welfare to fulfill training requirements and is presented by Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA). Protecting children is the responsibility of us all.  Anybody who suspects that a child is being hurt, has the right to report that suspicion. But, certain professionals, due to their contact or work with children, have special responsibilities.  These people are called mandated reporters and are required by law to report suspected child abuse.  Mandated reporters are of critical importance in the child abuse prevention effort.  This training identifies the role and responsibility bystanders and care providers play in the prevention, protection and intervention of child abuse. For more information on Act 31 it can be viewed at the following link: tinyurl.com/act31information
