Initial Review Training materials for CPR volunteers:

All CPR board volunteers must be trained in the CPR Initial Review. Training includes discussions on laws and issues related to child abuse and neglect, a presentation by a DCP&P caseworker, and a mock review.  The following materials are for reference only and do not replace training by court staff.  If you are an experienced or new CPR board volunteer who has not received the required training, please contact your local CPR Coordinator.  NJ CPAC also provides this training as part of its annual training program.
