Mandated reporter training provides the knowledge and skills to help professionals carry out their responsibilities to identify and report suspected cases of child abuse and neglect.
Federal and State laws exist to protect vulnerable populations, such as children and elderly and dependent adults, against abuse and neglect. The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) is Federal legislation enacted in 1974 to protect children from abuse and neglect. Under this legislation, each state has its own guidelines and laws regarding who needs to train and report, as well as penalties for failing to do so. Some states, such as CA, IL, and MI, require employers to provide training for mandated reporters.
A mandated reporter is a person required by law to report suspected abuse and neglect of vulnerable populations. In some states, all persons are considered mandated reporters. In others, the designation is based on professions, such as school employees, medical professionals, and HR employees, to name a few.
Mandated reporter training offers three solutions to help you or your organization get trained and remain compliant with state and federal requirements: online training courses for individuals, SCORM-compliant courseware, and a custom learning management system (LMS) are all available to help mandated reporters get trained.
Does your organization already have a learning management system for training employees? Then our standalone courseware is a perfect solution. Our SCORM-compliant courseware integrates with existing learning management systems.
Does your organization need a better solution for delivering training and educational materials? Our custom learning management system provides role-based UI/ UX, mandated reporter compliant courseware, course deployment, reporting and analytics, and optional third-party integrations.
Still not sure which solution is best for you? Request a consultation from our team.
