LARA Human Trafficking Training Requirements:
Please visit Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) to view the health professional licensing links to all professions here, to review your board specific education requirements:
The human trafficking training educational requirement applies to all license and registration renewals beginning with the first renewal cycle after this new rule became effective and for initial licenses and registrations issued five (5) or more years after the effective date of applicable rule. All individuals licensed or registered by the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs should contact their applicable boards to determine the enforcement date and answer any questions.
In an effort to address this widespread crisis, individuals licensed or registered by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (nurses, professional counselors, physicians, dentists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, social workers, massage therapists, etc.) have a new continuing educational requirement which must be met when seeking initial or renewal of an individual’s licensure or registration.
In the next renewal licensure and registration cycle, individuals must receive human trafficking training which covers the following areas:
- Understanding the types and venues of human trafficking in Michigan or the United States;
- Identifying victims of human trafficking in health care settings;
- Identifying the warning signs of human trafficking in health care settings for adults and minors; and
- Identifying resources for reporting the suspected victims of human trafficking.
Mandatory Human Trafficking Training may be accomplished through any of the following methods:
- Nationally recognized or state recognized health related organization;
- Training offered by, or in conjunction with, a state or federal agency;
- Educational programs approved by the board for initial licensure, or by a college or university; or
- Reading an article related to the identification of victims of human trafficking that is published in a peer review journal, health care journal, or professional or scientific journal.
Approved training modalities include any of the following:
- Teleconference or webinar;
- Online presentation;
- Live presentation; or
- Printed or electronic media.
As with other continuing educational requirements the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) may randomly audit individuals and request documented proof of the completion of human trafficking training. If audited the individual must provide acceptable proof of training, which includes either:
- A completion certificate issued by the training provider that includes the date, provider name, name of training, and individual’s name.; or
- A self-certification statement by an individual that includes the individual’s name and either:
- For training completed by a live presentation, online presentation, teleconference, or webinar, the self-certification must include the date, training provider name, and name of training; or
- For training completed by print or electronic media, the self-certification must include the title of article, author, publication name of peer review journal, health care journal, or professional or scientific journal, and date, volume, and issue of publication, as applicable.
Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking Training Requirements Michigan Medical Doctors:
Bureau of Professional Licensing Medicine FAQs: Beginning with licensees renewing in 2017 and all renewal cycles thereafter, licensees must have completed training in identifying victims of human trafficking that meet the standards established in Administrative Rule 338.2413.
Beginning December 6, 2021, individuals seeking initial licensure in Michigan must have completed human trafficking training prior to obtaining a medical doctor license.
The human trafficking training is a one-time training and is not part of the continuing education requirement but may be satisfied via a continuing education activity. The Board conducts a random audit after each renewal period. At that time, a percentage of all licensees renewing will be randomly selected and notified by mail that they must submit evidence of having obtained their human trafficking training. If you are selected in an audit, then you will be required to submit a copy of your human trafficking training documentation. (Retain your original)
Does my training on Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking count towards my CE hours?
No. However, if the training also satisfies the Board’s requirements for CE, then the training may be applied toward your CE requirement.
