Maine State Law now requires that all mandated reporters complete the Maine state training in person or on line.
Our goal is to have all clergy trained by May and all laity (where applicable) by 2018 church conferences.
The purpose of this training is to promote child safety by increasing the knowledge of mandated reporters regarding the identification of the signs of abuse and neglect and explaining the process for reporting abuse.
The objectives of the training are to:
• define the role of mandated reporters.
