General Training

Welcome to the Child Abuse Mandated Reporter Training - California. The general training module is all inclusive, non-profession specific, and should be taken by every Mandated Reporter. This program will provide an overview of the significant definitions, requirements and protections of the California Child Abuse & Neglect Reporting Act.

The general training module is a four hour training that includes four sections. Each section will include practice test questions or vignettes.

At the conclusion of the training you will take a final exam which will test the information that you have learned during the training. Upon scoring an 80% or higher you will be able to fill out and print your Certificate of Completion.

  • What protections the law provides for a mandated reporter
  • How to spot evidence of child abuse
  • How to report child abuse
  • What happens after a report is filed

What people are saying.

As a working mom with a 4-year old, I appreciated how simple and easy-to-use this training was. It made it very easy for me to get the certification I needed and helped me understand a very valuable subject matter.
