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 your local Area Education Agency (Under Links, click on AEA Professional Development Online. On the left side, click on Trainings) or ISEA UniServ office.
A list of courses can be dowloaded as a Microsoft Excel file. (Current as of early 2013)
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.
