Mandated Reporter Trainings:

Everyone who works with children is a mandated reporter. This means that if you work with children, you are legally responsible for reporting all incidents of suspected child abuse and neglect. When you filled out the forms for your job, you probably signed a form agreeing to this responsibility, but you may not fully understand your responsibilities and legal obligations as a mandated reporter.
