The amendment will be effective on July 1, 2015. The legislation also added a new Section 3036 to the Education Law which requires all individuals currently holding or applying for a temporary coaching license or professional coaching certificate to complete two hours of training regarding the identification and reporting of child abuse and maltreatment.
