Online Orientation – requires a computer (do not use a tablet or phone)

An online orientation will require you to have access to a computer, the Internet, and an active email address. The Personal Support Worker Online Orientation is only available on iLearnOregon. iLearnOregon is the State of Oregon's website for online learning.

The online orientation will take about 3 hours to complete. You can stop and start the orientation, you don’t have to complete it all at one time. The online orientation has an audio feature if you have a speaker on your computer. If you prefer to read the material instead of listening to it, follow the instructions in the course for this option. Once you have successfully completed the orientation a certificate will be available for printing.
