On-Demand Online Training
Although the best way to receive training on recognizing and reporting child abuse and neglect is through interactive, face-to-face training, PFSA offers an online alternative for mandated reporters. The online training is self-paced; participants should allow themselves at least three hours to complete the training.
“Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse” is appropriate for all mandated reporters. The training is specifically approved by the Department of State for licensure or license renewal in health-related occupations (Act 31) and by the Department of Education (Act 126) for school personnel (Act 48 credits).
“Responding to Disclosures of Child Abuse” is appropriate for mandated reporters who have already taken mandated reporter training and need to take it again. This training provides an overview for professionals to help them understand the importance of their reactions to a disclosure of child abuse and to assist them in responding in a way that is sensitive to the child yet avoids tainting the child’s memory. The training is also approved by the Department of State for licensure or license renewal in health-related occupations (Act 31) and by the Department of Education (Act 126) for school personnel (Act 48 credits).
