SEWMGV Upcoming Events

Mandatory Child Protection Training
With the implementation of Executive Order 54 – mandatory reporting of child abuse and neglect – all UWEX staff and volunteers are required to complete mandatory reporter online training. All Master Gardeners are required to complete this training. Even though some people may not volunteer with youth, they have the potential to interact with youth.  No exceptions. At the end of the training there is an option to print a certificate of completion. This should be printed and turned in to the local county UWEX office to keep on file. This must be done by the time hours are turned in next fall, and the counties will include the information on completion in the report submitted to the state Program Office.

Go to Link for Abuse Training for All MGVs  to get started. It should take 30-60 minutes to complete the core of the training, with options to access additional useful information that will add to the training time. This training can be counted as 1 hour (60 minutes) of continuing education.
