If you are an independent provider who is applying for certification for the first time, do not take this course. Take the Independent Provider Initial Training course. 

Independent providers are required to complete a total of 8 hours of annual training. Completing the first section of this course satisfies the requirement for independent providers to complete two hours of department-provided annual training.

The additional 6 hours of training can be taken from any source. DODD has provided optional training modules in this course that can count toward additional required annual training hours.

See OAC 5123-2-09 and associated appendices for more information.
