Changes to Mandatory Reporter Requirements
In 2019, HF 731 modified the requirements for mandatory reporter training for child and dependent adult abuse. The Iowa Department of Human Services is now providing the trainings online for free. The AEA is providing the same trainings online for a fee. If it is time to update your trainings, be sure to complete both child and dependent adult abuse trainings. Mandatory reporter trainings completed prior to July 1, 2019 will still be valid for five years from the date of completion.
Due to the large volume of requests, transactions may take up to six weeks to process. Effective June 1, our phones will be off until 10:00 a.m. to allow time for processing applications. You can check the status of an application by logging into your account. A status of "Pending Internal Review" means that your application has been submitted. Please do not contact our office unless it has been longer than six weeks. Office hours will remain 8:00 to 4:30.
