WIC Certifier Program

The WIC Certifier Guide is now the WIC Certifier Program. It can be found in Workday Learning. 

All materials are now in Workday Learning. 

The WIC Certifier Program has 12 sections and a post test. Each section includes at least one course. Courses may be self-paced PDF courses, eLearning courses, or videos. Each program section has a Guide that includes staff study guides and course completion forms.

Your training supervisor will need to maintain signed copies of each completion form.

The Certifier Program can be accessed in Workday Learning using the links on this page or by searching 'WIC Certifier Program' in Workday Learning. 

'Paper modules' are now called 'Self-Paced PDF Courses' Learners enroll in the course and download the PDF files to complete the course. All PDF courses, completion forms and any other PDFs are fillable. This means learners can take notes within the file and save it to their computer. If you prefer a paper copy of this Certifier Program Courses or any of the self-paced PDF courses (such as Nutrition Risk course), ask your Training Supervisor to order a copy from Oregon WIC Shopify.

Below is a table of the WIC Certifier Program and sections in Workday. Use the links in the sections here, or search in the Learning section search bar in Workday for 'Certifier Program'. All sections begin with 'OHA - PHD - Certifier Program Section...'
