PBJ Learning – National Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Most are overwhelmed by the topic of human trafficking. Curious how anyone could become a victim, without it being obvious? Are you a parent concerned about your child’s safety, whether in person or online? Concerned you or someone you know might need some help? There is an easy answer.

During the month of January* (National Human Trafficking Awareness Month), you can access a professional level anti-trafficking course. It teaches you to recognize and respond to human trafficking. The best part is you get to “Choose Your Own Price.” 

Human Trafficking Essentials, the interactive, self-paced, online course, can be accessed through any browser (even your phone) and comes with a certificate of mastery, guaranteed to be accepted for continuing education credits.

Do you have a PMP Certification and need credit hours? Project Management Institute provides professional development units (PDUs) for course completion.
