Sexual Abuse Prevention Program – Mandatory training for RECEs

Have you completed the College’s Sexual Abuse Prevention Program?

The prevention program is a mandatory educational requirement that all members must complete. The program supports members’ commitment to the personal safety, health, and well-being of all children and empowers them with proactive approaches to help prevent child sexual abuse.

What happens if you don’t complete the Sexual Abuse Prevention Program?

If you don’t complete the prevention program, your registration with the College may be suspended for failure to comply with the Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) Program requirements.
