Are you a mandated reporter?
If you live in Pennsylvania and are responsible for the care, supervision, training or guidance of a child or children, you ARE a mandated reporter.
If you are wondering what this means for you, join Neighborhood Learning Alliance for this FREE mandated reporter training, as we discuss the legal requirements for mandated reports in Pennsylvania.
This training is approved by the PA Department of Human Services to meet mandated reporting (Act 31) training requirements and Act 126 (child abuse recognition and reporting). Participants are able to earn a certificate, ACT 48 hours and/or PQAS hours.
Participants will learn how to:
- Describe the roles, rights and responsibilities of mandated and permissive reporters of suspected child abuse
- Identify whether you are a mandated or permissive reporter
- Recognize potential indicators of child abuse
- Determine when to report suspected child abuse based on a reasonable cause to suspect.
- Understand the reporting process
- Define protections, penalties and right-to-know for mandated reporters.
