Child Abuse Identification and Reporting Workshop Registration Deadline


October 3, 2021 by 11:59 p.m.

Chapter 544 of the Law of 1988 requires that classroom teachers, nurses, counselors, coaches, administrators and other school service personnel complete a 2-hour Child Abuse Prevention certification training from an approved NYSED provider for certification or licensure.

NYSED also requires training related to child abuse for Licensed Behavior Analysts and Mental Health Counselors.

The Warner School offers this workshop, administered by Genesee Valley BOCES, once each academic year during the fall semester. The Warner School covers the registration fee for students matriculated in a program that leads to NYS certification or licensure. Registration is required. 

This workshop is open only to current students and alumni of the Warner School. 

Register for the Fall 2021 child abuse workshop. Registration closes on 10/3/21.

Workshop dates for the current academic year can be found here. Log-in information will be provided by BOCES prior to the online workshop being available. 

Upon completion of the workshop, BOCES will upload certificates of completion for students with a TEACH account. 

Mental health and ABA students will need to submit a pdf copy of their certificate of completion to certification@warner.rochester.edu

In order to verify the NYSED seat-time requirement, we advise that participants complete all coursework 1 week prior to the closing date of the course.

For further information, contact certification@warner.rochester.edu or (585) 276-5405.
