Mandatory Child and Adult Abuse Reporter Training

In the spring of 2001, legislation was passed requiring all individuals renewing a license or authorization issued by the Board of Educational Examiners to provide proof of completion of an approved "Mandatory Child and Dependent Adult Abuse Reporter Training" program. This law became effective on October 1, 2002.

This training should be available through Iowa AEA Online, ISEA UniServ office, 7SecondCoach and many others.

A complete list of the approved training programs may be found at the Iowa Department of Public Health site. Note that the list of courses on the Department of Public Health site includes multiple types of courses. Only those programs that are designated TYPE 3 meet Iowa license renewal requirements.
