Reporting to Adult Protective Services: Recognizing and Reporting Maltreatment Training
As a community, we all have a responsibility to ensure the safety of our most vulnerable populations, but some people are required by law to make a report to Adult Protective Services (APS) if they suspect maltreatment (Arizona Revised Statute § 46-454). This training outlines the process of an APS investigation, how to make a report, and defines who are Mandated Reporters. The training runs for approximately 60 minutes. Proof of completion will be emailed to you after successful completion of the training and the quiz.
Pursuant to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other nondiscrimination laws and authorities, ADES does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. Persons that require a reasonable modification based on language or disability should submit a request as early as possible to ensure the State has an opportunity to address the modification. The process for requesting a reasonable modification can be found at Equal Opportunity and Reasonable Modification.
