2022-23 Annual Training

Hospital providers must have at least one staff member attend each of the two trainings. Clinic providers would only need to attend one of the two policies and procedures training sessions. There will not be training this year on the clinic version of the client application. All providers are encouraged to have at least one staff member attend the Question and Answer session. The Question and Answer session will cover all questions asked during the first four training sessions and will have an open forum for additional questions. Training will contain attendee participation questions throughout.
