REVIEW: Unbound – Identifying & Responding to Human Trafficking: Commercial Lodging & Hospitality Industry


Cost: Free. 

Assessment-based Certificate: No. You only need to watch the video. 

Interactivity: None.

Duration: ~30 minutes.

Course Description: This training satisfies the requirements of Texas House Bill 390 for training for hotel employees through the Human Trafficking and Transnational / Organized Crime Division of the Office of the Attorney General.

Course Objectives

    • Understand what human trafficking is,
    • Discover requirements for commercial lodging and the hospitality industry,
    • Learn specific signs to look for based on your role, and
    • Be prepared to make a report of suspected human trafficking.

Review: Good material delivered as a voiceover / slide show. Certificate after you watch video.

  • My video review below has some callouts in it. 
  • As an education course, it meets the minimum legal requirements.
  • It's great that you can scrub the video and change its speed. It could have been only 20 minutes long (required by law), but they went to 30 minutes.
  • Lots of emphasis on MALE trafficking, which is a HUGE improvement over other courses. 
  • There's no “video”; it's all static images.
  • The speaker knows their material and is authoritative. 
  • All in all, I was left wanting more. It was too much like a slideshow.
  • It's always sad when there's no assessment.
  • It's nice they had pre-video questionnaire and post-video review forms. I might add that into our work one day.
  • Couple of good screenshots at the bottom of the blog I had to share with you!

Language support: Video is in English. No subtitles.

Additional Resources: There are no downloadable resources.
