Kid's First Custody Workshop

Is it a mandatory requirement in York County PA court for an individual to go to the Kid's First Custody workshop in a custody matter that was just initiated? The parents of the child were never married, never lived together and have never separated during the life of the child. The parents separated before the child was born. I am new to this court and have been through the mill with court ordered counseling 3 different times with the last court but because the last court doesn't have this program I am being told I have to go for even more counseling through this court now doing this kid's first custody workshop right off the bat. Very frustrating since I care for my 9 year old child full time and work full time. Sick and tired of missing work for these courts!
