The 2022 State Humane Agent Training is in development. As a result of Covid-19, we will not be conducting in person training seminars at this time and instead have and are continuing to develop webinars specifically designed for Minnesota Law Enforcement, current appointed MFHS State Humane Agents and new recruits. Each one hour session will provide 1 hour of continuing education credit.
All MFHS new recruits, current state humane agents and investigators are required to complete a minimum of 20 hours of online training. All new recruits must complete at least 3 months field training and pass an exam. All agents are required to continue education/training via the courses offered to them throughout the year. All agents are required to review Minnesota State and Federal Animal Welfare Laws regularly.
Dates and times for training webinars will be posted here on our MFHS website, on our MFHS Facebook and MFHS State Humane Agent group pages. Invitations to register for the webinars will be sent to Minnesota Law Enforcement and MFHS State Humane Agents 2 weeks in advance. Register early to make sure you get a virtual seat as space is limited. Stay tuned.
