Steps in the Certification Process
>> Step 1 – Sign up for a Hotel Administrator Account to manage your location, using the following form:
>> Step 2 – Train your staff
You have different options: Individual Online Training, Group Training or a Combination of Both
Individual Online Training – Each employee goes to the www.stophtiowa.org website & views one of the training videos. After watching the video, each employee creates an account and takes the online test. After the employee passes the test, they will receive a certificate to print out. The employee prints out the certificate and provides it to management.
Group Training - Hold a group training using one of the training videos on our site, https://stophtiowa.org/training-library
After your staff have viewed a training video, they will need to take & pass a written test. Management uploads the records of the training to the stophtiowa.org website using their Hotel Administrator account. Management is also required to keep copies of group training records at the facility.
To request a copy of the written test: email firstname.lastname@example.org
To upload training records use the following template:
* The stophtiowa.org website requires each employee to have a unique email address to register their training information. If employees do not have an email address/refuse to provide one, we recommend creating a fictitious email using the following format: Firstname.Lastname@noemail.com
>>Step 3 – Request Final Certification
After your staff have been trained, fill out the Final Certification form linked below:
>>Step 4 – Receive Certification
The Iowa Office to Combat Human Trafficking (OCHT) approves your lodging facility, and you receive a Facility Certificate for your records. The facility is now certified for 3 years. You still need to train new staff within 30 days of hire, but no further information needs to be submitted to OCHT until re-certification.
