Human Trafficking Prevention – Legislative Mandate

The human trafficking prevention training course requirement is mandated by the Texas Legislature [House Bill 2059].  A course may or may not count toward your total CE hours, dependent upon the course accreditation.  The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is the approving body for this requirement.  HHSC now has a dedicated page for health care practitioners who must complete this training requirement (view HHSC Human Trafficking Training).

Should you have questions about the provisions of H.B. 2059 and/or the human trafficking prevention training courses, HHSC has provided a contact email on their page as well.

This requirement is due with license renewals received after August 31, 2020 and before September 1, 2022.
