APD Provider/Partner Resources

Adult Foster Home (AFH) Providers and Caregivers are required by Oregon Administrative Rules to complete continuing education requirements for purposes of annual licensing.

The DHS 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 may submit a request for training credit approval.

Included below are instructions for selecting and completing the correct request form, links to the forms, instructions for submitting your request and information about the AFH Training Credit Committee review and approval process.

Please Note: AFH Providers and caregivers may take any course or training for extended learning or skill enhancement that they wish. However, only those courses or trainings that have been approved for training credits by the AFH Training Credit Committee may count towards the individual's required continuing education.
