Abuse Identification & Reporting for the Mandatory Reporter

Beginning July 1, 2019 the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) will take over the responsibilities for mandatory reporting training. There will be a two hour child abuse and a two hour dependent adult abuse available on the DHS website free of charge. This will be the only approved training allowed in Iowa and the only way to receive the training. There are changes in how often you need to take the training, instead of every five years it is now every three years. The webpage and training will be available on July 1, 2019. Any current approval/provider numbers issued through the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) will be void on June 30, 2019. IDPH will not be renewing any approval/provider numbers due to this change. All questions will need to go to DHS after June 30, 2019.
