The Oregon Registry Online Address will be Changing Soon!new

On September 1st 2014 (and not before then!) 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 till August 31st, 2014 to mail all training and education documentation is:

Oregon Registry Online

875 Union St NE

Salem OR 97311

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

Portland State University- OCCD

Oregon Registry Online

PO Box 751

Portland OR 97207-0751
