Mandated Reporter Training

  • All employees and independent contractors who work for a school entity, such as the AIU, are considered mandated reporters and are required to report suspected child abuse if they have reasonable cause to suspect a child is a victim of abuse. Per Act 126, mandated reporters must take a 3 hour training on Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse every five years.  Act 31 requires all employees licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of State take a 2-3 hour training on Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse every two years.
