WIC Civil Rights Training - Minnesota Dept. of Health

WIC Civil Rights Training

Civil Rights Training for the Minnesota WIC Program is required on an annual basis. New staff should complete Civil Rights Training within 6 months of hire. WIC staff must use the training materials provided by MN WIC. Any local agency-specific training would be in addition to the state-provide training (see MOM Section 1.10 Civil Rights (PDF)).

This module covers basic Civil Rights information and the application of the information.
