​Approval Proce​​ss

Adult Foster Home (AFH) providers and caregivers are required by Oregon Administrative Rules to complete continuing education requirements for annual licensing. The ODHS AFH Training Credit Committee must review course information and authorize any training credits issued for the continuing education requirements of AFH providers and caregivers. 

AFH providers, caregivers, instructors and sponsors of training events can submit a request for training credit approval.

Note: AFH providers and caregivers can take any course or training for extended learning or skill enhancement they wish. However, only courses or trainings that have been approved by the AFH Training Credit Committee count toward required continuing education hours.
