Mandated Reporting On-Line (Act 126) NEW – Once the on-line training has been completed you must print off your certificate and turn it in to the school office. When you get to page 298 where it asks “Are you a mandated reporter or permissive reporter?” you must click “Mandated Reporter” and continue. Otherwise, you will need to go back in and complete the training to get a valid certificate. Click here if you would rather register for one of the Live Mandated Reporter training classes.
