Mandated Reporting eLearning

Free Mandated Reporting eLearning

Course Description

In California many professions are now legally designated as mandated reporters of elder and dependent adult abuse. This course will address reporting responsibilities; help participants to understand how, when and where to report suspected abuse or neglect; and inform participants of what to expect after the report has been made.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be equipped with the necessary tools and information they need to make a report each time they suspect or witness elder or dependent adult abuse or neglect.

This free eLearning was made available by the generous funding of California Department of Social Services (CDSS).
