The Oregon Registry Online Address has Changed!new

On September 1st 2014 all individuals will begin mailing their training and education documents to a new address. Changes in software and hardware have allowed us to restructure our internal scanning process. The only change for individuals is where they mail their training and education documentation. It is very important that individuals and facilities assure their training and education documentation is mailed correctly. If training documentation arrives at the wrong address, be aware that this will certainly delay the verification of training and education.

The correct address beginning September 1st, 2014 to mail all training and education documentation is:

Portland State University- OCCD
