The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services needed a training solution that standardizes food sampling procedures for all employees across the state. CIMES designed highly interactive web-based learning modules featuring video demonstrations, step-by-step illustrations, tips for best practices, and “tales from the trenches” featuring audio interviews with food inspectors.
The Open Doors Outreach Network was launched by Voices for Florida in 2016 as part of an effort to address service gaps for victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking. An orientation module introduces Voices for Florida, ODON, its service model, and what is expected of partner organizations within the network.
