Find Child Care Training
Welcome to your professional development journey in early childhood education!
Oregon has designed a statewide training calendar called Oregon Registry Online (ORO) where you can search for child care resource & referral sponsored training throughout the state. All of the training we offer can be found through this link and has been pre-approved for license training requirements.
Care Connections & Education will log all training hours you take through our agency into your ORO account that you can access on your own to see your accumulated training. You may also take trainings related to child care that are not sponsored through a child care resource & referral agency. These training can be added to your ORO account by submitting a training certificate.
Training criteria can be found here.
Non CCRR sponsored training certificates must be submitted with an ORO Coversheet
