How many hours of implicit bias training are required in Michigan?

New Applicants for licensure or registration are required to have completed 2 hours of implicit bias training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration.

Renewing licensees are required to complete 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of their license or registration cycle. However, for initial renewal after June 1, 2021, licensees will only need to have 1 hour for each year since the rule’s promulgation date of June 1, 2021.

For example, if you are scheduled to renew your license in August of 2022, you would only be required to have 1 hour of training, even if the length of your license was 3 years. Remember: The rule also specifically states that this training is in addition to any continuing education requirements required for renewal.

Subsequent renewals will require 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of the license or registration cycle.

Do you have to report your implicit bias certificate to the state?

The learner does not need to report their certificate of completion for implicit bias to the state of Michigan. During application or renewal, an applicant, licensee, or registrant will attest to compliance with the new rule and completion of a LARA compliant implicit bias training. The department may select and audit a sample of licensees or registrants and request documentation of proof of compliance with the rule.
