Homecare and personal support workers and personal care attendants have the opportunity to attend trainings to enhance and develop their skill set.
The Oregon Home Care Commission provides free training opportunities for homecare and personal support workers and personal care attendants. Trainings are offered throughout Oregon every month. Please refer to our course catalog for a detailed description of each training.
The Commission offers a training newsletter called Elevate and it is available online and in print. The newsletter includes the trainings available during the month and when and where they will be held. The newsletter also has information about available certifications offered through the Commission and how to qualify. You can find the training newsletters at http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/SENIORS-DISABILITIES/HCC/PSW-HCW/Pages/Worker-News.aspx
