Youth Protection Training (YPT) - continuing education vs mandatory

For YPT there is a “continuing education” training and a “mandatory” training. I believe that the mandatory training is what is needed to be completed by leaders / committee members every 2 years but the description for the continuing education training doesn’t clarify what / who this is intended for. Can anyone help to clarify for me?

@MatthewMcCormick I will answer and close the post to protect you - Mandatory is rather self explanatory - do that
