Pennsylvania Act 31 of 2014: Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting Training

Course: #42899Level: Introductory 2 Hours 254 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

This webinar is designed to meet the requirements of biennial licensure renewal for healthcare licensees in Pennsylvania. Content includes the nature of the child welfare system in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the aspects of child abuse in Pennsylvania law, potential indicators of child abuse, the provisions and responsibilities for reporting suspected child abuse, and how to make appropriate referrals to the child welfare system.

Please Note: If you are completing this course as part of license renewal requirements for a Pennsylvania license, AudiologyOnline must report your coursework to the Pennsylvania Licensing System (PALS) on your behalf. On the pre-exam page, you must opt in (i.e., check “yes” for reporting to PA). Provide your full date of birth and the last four digits of your Social Security number for accurate reporting.

This course was updated in 2020 to include new information required due to changes in the law. Applicants for initial PA licensure should contact their licensing board for resources for the required 3-hour mandated reporter training.

To allow adequate time for reporting course completions to the Pennsylvania Licensing System (PALS) prior to PT/PTA license expiration on 7/31/24, this course will be closed to new registrations after 7/21/24. All registrants must complete this course on or before 7/21/24 if you want AudiologyOnline to report your course completion to PALS.
