PSW-HCW

Oregon Intervention System (OIS) is Oregon's system of training and implementing the principles of Positive Behavior Support and Intervention for people who support adults and children with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities who may display challenging behaviors.
The OIS-General course is offered for Personal Support Workers who provide in-home supports through the Oregon Home Care Commission. We contract with OIS Instructors certified through ASI Oregon to provide this training.

The Oregon Home Care Commission offers OIS-G Training for Personal Support Workers in two ways.
