Welcome to the Minnesota Regional Poison Center’s Poison Prevention Training Program. We would like to acknowledge the Georgia Poison Center for their collaborative efforts on this project.

By completing this course you will become a Volunteer Community Poison Prevention Educator for the Minnesota Regional Poison Center. Hopefully, after completing this program you will be able to teach others about poisonings and what to do in a poisoning emergency.  Anyone living and/or working in Minnesota, North Dakota, or South Dakota is welcome to complete the course and use the online poison prevention resource center. If you do not live/work in our served regions, please contact your local poison center for available training and resources.

After completion of all lessons, quizzes, test, and evaluation you will gain full access to the resource center. To access your course outline click here.
