Safety Set Training
If you intend to become a licensed child care provider or want to be Oregon’s Depart of Human Services (DHS) approved to care for non-relative children, you will need the following training:
Recognizing & Reporting Child Abuse & Neglect
As a DHS listed child care provider, or a licensed provider through the Office of Child Care, you are considered a mandatory reporter of child abuse and neglect. That means you are required by law to report suspected abuse and neglect to the DHS Child Welfare Program. Free Recognizing & Reporting Child Abuse & Neglect training is available online 24/7 or you can call our office to learn about low cost in person training opportunities.
Introduction to Child Care Health & Safety
This course is designed to provide basic health and safety training for child care providers in Oregon and is available for free online.
Pediatric First Aid & CPR
Learn important life saving skills for infants, children and adults. Required for anyone becoming a licensed child care provider or DHS provider caring for non-relative children. Recommended for everyone! Find classes in your area here.
Food Handler Certification

Safe Sleep for Oregon’s Infants
