Child Abuse Awareness
Washington STARS Credit: Health, Safety and Nutrition (1 hour)
Most students are able to use mobile devices such as tablets to complete courses. However, each device is different, and an individual's skill level with the device may determine their success with using a mobile device. Use of an iPad, tablet, or cell phone is at your own risk.
This course provides basic standard protocol for child abuse mandated reporting. If your state requires a Mandated Reporter training, this course may not meet that requirement. Some states have a state specific course that is required. Please be sure to comply with state regulations for training requirements.
Course Difficulty: Level 2 - This course has entry level vocabulary that most students should be able to easily become familiar with. Assignments include peer discussion boards, open-ended and multiple choice questions.
This topic has been collaboratively created, organized, and developed by our team of trainers, educators, administrators and specialists. We strive to maintain high quality online training methods while adhering to state standards for adult learning and meeting the needs of our students.
