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.
OHCC OIS-G Training
The Oregon Home Care Commission offers OIS-G Training at no cost for Personal Support Workers who
- Have an active PSW Provider Number or can show proof of approved, paid employment through a Community Developmental Disability Program (CDDP), Children's Intensive In-Home Services (CIIS), or Brokerage.
- Can show proof of paid hours as a PSW in one of three full calendar months prior to submitting the request form.
- Have completed at least two Oregon Home Care Commission training classes (except MoneyWise and Challenging Behaviors).
After submitting an OIS-G Training Request Form, you will be contacted to register for an OIS-G Training.
This two-day training is provided at no cost to Personal Support Workers who meet the criteria. A training stipend is not provided.
Exceptional Personal Support Worker Certificate Program
OIS-G is a required component of the Exceptional Personal Support Worker Certificate Program. PSWs enrolled in the Exceptional PSW Certificate Program who do not have an OIS-G Certificate will be enrolled in an OHCC OIS-G course.
