NEW 50-minute, online human trafficking training video:
In December, we launched a revised and revamped online human trafficking training. The new 50-minute video features up-to-date information about the signs and indicators of human trafficking and who is impacted in Ohio, interviews with responders and survivors, and how you can help make a difference. Importantly, participants from Ohio's boards and commissions can receive 1 CE hour for viewing the updated training and completing a short quiz. To access the training video, go to humantrafficking.ohio.gov and click the first yellow button on the left that says, "Human Trafficking Training - earn 1.0 CE Hour of Training."
