The Sunshine Laws Certification Training, provided by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, is a three-hour certification training session provided to all elected officials, and/or their appropriate designees, as well as members of the general public.
Ohio Revised Code Section 109.43(B) states:
The attorney general shall develop, provide, and certify training programs and seminars for all elected officials or their appropriate designees in order to enhance the officials’ knowledge of the duty to provide access to public records as required by section 149.43 of the Revised Code. The training shall be three hours for every term of office for which the elected official was appointed or elected to the public office involved.
Each session includes an in-depth analysis of Ohio’s Public Records Act, with a brief discussion of Ohio’s Open Meetings Act.
