Current Worker Training

Current workers do not need to take action until 2021.

 In the Fall of 2021, a new Oregon law will require all homecare and personal support workers to complete 12 hours of training by March 31, 2022. Carewell SEIU 503 Training will be rolling out this training beginning in early 2021. Training for current workers takes place in two parts: an Online Refresher and a virtual Refresher Workshop.
