Pilot Project- Benefits Counseling Certification Training- Coming in October!

Now you can have your very own certified benefits counselor at your agency! This free training is the first of its kind in Oregon. Gene Rada and Paula Fitch from DHS/Work Incentives Network will be providing training to interested parties from IPS programs around the state. The training will be held 10/9/2017 – 10/13/2017, 8:00am-5:00pm, at the Chemeketa Center for Business & Industry Room 101 at 626 High St NE Salem, OR 97301. Pre-registration is required for all participants and you may do so at https://ilearn.oregon.gov/. It may be easiest to use the keyword “Kanji” in the search field to find the training. The training will be limited to a maximum number of participants.  We had a call for supervisors in June to discuss the requirements and details of this certification and training.
