Human Trafficking Investigation

According to authorities, between 600,000 and 800,000 people are trafficked each year between nations against their will for purposes of sexual exploitation or slave labor. This estimate doesn't include the millions of others trafficked within their own countries. Despite its international nature, human trafficking is not just a problem for Interpol and federal level law enforcement, but local agencies as well. Victims of human trafficking can be encountered almost anywhere in the world, from child armies in West Africa to massage parlors in small town America. The final exam for this course is administered online as a 20-question multiple-choice test. Upon completion of the test, the score is automatically graded and documented in the student's "My Courses" transcript (accessible from the "My Account" page). In accordance with S2 Online course policy, the student must complete the online test with a passing score of 80% or better to receive a Certificate of Training. If the student does not pass the test the first time, the student has one opportunity to re-test.
