Mandated Child Abuse Reporter Training (MCART) workshops and training on the issues of Child Sexual Abuse and the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSA/CSEC) are now being offered as a three-hour live virtual training through Zoom. These training opportunities are free of charge to agencies and individuals within Sacramento County. Agencies can schedule a private session for their staff or Mandated Reporters can attend one of the Open to the Public sessions listed below.

A brief overview of MCART:

The workshop teaches mandated reporters their legal responsibilities to report known or suspected child abuse and neglect in California, how to recognize indicators (red flags) of the different types of abuse and neglect, and how to make a Suspected Child Abuse Report. This training is for participants who work with children and/or families. The California Penal Code states, “The absence of training shall not excuse a mandated reporter from the duties imposed by the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act.” (CPC11165.7[e])
