Susie's commentary: This training is long overdue as became abundantly clear after the Jacks tragedy when the number of mandated reporter trainings dramatically increased. Good, right? Not really. Some of the post-tragedy trainings misinformed attendees, incorrectly representing the law and its mandates.
This should be the required training for all mandated reporters.
