The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) recently released the final draft of the Public Health Code to allow asynchronous teleconference or webinars as part of training for implicit bias standards.
The rule, R338.7001, was revised March 23, 2023 to allow for more ways for licensees to take the training.
Acceptable modalities of training include any of the following:

What does it mean for you?
Implicit bias training is no longer required to be synchronous, live and include interaction. Licensees can now complete training to meet the implicit bias requirement for license application or renewal via on-demand, asynchronous webinars, or live sessions.
Michigan FAQ for Implicit Bias Training:
New applicants for licensure or registration are required to have completed 2 hours of implicit bias training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration.
Renewing licensees and registrants are required to complete 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of their license or registration cycle. However, for initial renewal after June 1, 2021, licensees will only need to have 1 hour for each year since the rule’s promulgation date of June 1, 2021. For example, if you are scheduled to renew your license in August of 2022, you would only be required to have 1 hour of training, even if the length of your license was 3 years.
Subsequent renewals will require 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of the license or registration cycle.
