Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation (ANE) Refresher

This online refresher course serves as an alternative to the in-person, six-hour classroom training offered by certified ANE trainers. The course enhances students’ ability to recognize possible abuse and includes real examples of reports made to DHI’s Hotline. The course also re-familiarizes participants with the New Mexico Administrative Code (NMAC) which outlines roles and responsibilities for mandatory reporting of ANE.

This refresher course is only for those who have successfully completed the in-person version and who are in need of annual recertification.

Important Note: The course requires you to refer to a hard copy of NMAC 7.1.14 as you proceed through the course. Follow this link to download and print the document:
