There are four different OHCC Certifications

Professional Development Certification (PDC)

The Oregon Home Care Commission recognizes homecare workers and personal support workers who are lifelong learners and want to continue developing their skills through the Professional Development Certification program​.​ Complete the PDC and you'll not only gain valuable knowledge to help you on the job - you'll also receive an hourly wage increase of 50 cents per hour for 24 months. Plus, you can renew your certification to keep learning (and maintain your higher wage). Talk about rewarding! 

Completing Professional Development Certification also allows you to begin training toward higher-level certifications (Enhanced Certification, Exceptional Certification). See below for additional information.

OHCC Career Insights

Screen Shot 2022-07-26 at 2.16.12 PM"When you are working for homecare workers, you enjoy it because you believe that you made something good for these people. I believe that this is a very good job and here in Oregon, we have a lot of very good benefits. And this is very good because you get a better life too. You helped other people have a better life, but you will also have a better life helping others."

Screen Shot 2022-07-26 at 2.19.00 PMI find the whole process here in the state rewarding because there's very little paperwork, there's very good support from our social workers and I feel like I can devote more time to her because I'm not caught up with a lot of paperwork and meetings and things that can bog you down. So Bobbie and I get to spend more time together and do some fun things and it's very rewarding for me and I think it's better for her because she has someone who can give her this one-on-one care is very personalized for her and I think other people if they would get into this area they would find it also very rewarding to take care of it whether it was one person a relative several people whatever you want to do you would find it rewarding and easy to work here in this state of Oregon.
