Q. Why did I receive an official certification form in the mail?

This is the number one question we receive from callers! If you completed the NY mandatory child abuse recognition and reporting course, you received a certification from us in the mail or by email if you live outside the U.S. The mandated reporter training course is the only course that has two certificates. As an approved New York provider, we are required to send an offical form to you. There is so much confusion about this second certificate that we felt compelled to write a post. You can learn more about the Certification of Completion form for the Mandated Reporter Training course by visiting our blog.
