Rights & Due Process Training

New Hire Rights Training

All employees must receive New Hire Rights Training from the Office of Recipient Rights before they can work with anyone receiving services through the public mental health system. This training is required to be completed within the first 30 days of the employee's hire date. Proof of this training will be provided in the form of a certificate. 

We continue to hold New Hire Rights Training as an online, live webinar via Microsoft Teams. To participate virtually, participants must use Microsoft Teams. In person, face-to-face trainings will begin twice a month in June (there will still be a virtual option) at our Troy Office. Click here to register for a training. Find guidance on New Hire Rights Live Webinar Training here (PDF). 

Online Annual Rights Update Training / Test

The annual update test must be taken and passed within 12 months of completing the New Hire Rights Training, and a certificate must be printed to verify receipt of the annual update training. Review the Recipients Rights Training Presentation (PDF) to see the training material and complete the annual update test.

You must complete the training prior to taking the test. The test link is available at the end of the presentation.
