CPS System Information Resources
There is an excellent web training by the Division of Children and Families for mandated reporters at http://wcwpds.wisc.edu/mandatedreporter/
There is also great information including two very good web trainings provided by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction at http://sspw.dpi.wi.gov/sspw_can. The information is geared toward school staff as mandated reporters but is relevant to other reporters and concerned persons as well.
If you want a link to the Department of Children and Families’ Program/Service information, including links to the state standards that define CPS, go to http://dcf.wisconsin.gov/children/CPS/progserv/progINDX.htm
If you would like a more in-depth introduction to CPS, you are welcome to complete the web based pre-service training at https://wcwpds.wisc.edu/pre-service-outside-pds-online.htm. This training is available to anyone and includes modules on topics like engaging families and human development that will be useful to anyone working with children and their families.
