To Athletic Directors:

Coaches renewing their coaching authorization are reminded that the certificate verifying the Mandatory Reporter Training is required to say child AND DEPENDENT ADULT abuse from an APPROVED PROVIDER.

Mandatory reporter curriculum approval is determined by the Department of Public Health. There are hundreds of agencies approved to provide the training and many more which provide it but are not approved.  Many approved providers offer the training in two parts. Licensed practitioners (such as coaches) who fail to complete and submit the correct certificate waste time and money and delay the renewal process. 

ALL License renewals (teachers, coaches, administrators, para-eduators, substitutes, etc) MUST be accompanied by an approved certificate of completion of the mandatory reporter training, no older than 5 years old.  When signing up for the training, be aware that the local AEA will offer the training online and will include both requirements when you ask for it to be for LICENSURE RENEWAL.

You can access the list of approved programs with a link on our website at:
