    The Mandated Reporter online training approved content published by DCFS now reflects changes made in PA 101-0564 and the Abused, Neglected and Child Reporting Act and can be accessed through the DCFS website and Virtual Training Center, free of charge 24/7, 365 days, with the ability for users to print completion certificates as evidence for the employer.  Interested parties desiring to develop their own training as a standalone or embedded with other content may do so with the understanding that they must use the Department’s public facing content as the basis of their required material.
