Courses meet on all dates listed. Please do not sign up for a course if you know you cannot attend all sessions.

How to Register

Tuition is funded by a grant from ODOT Transportation Safety Division for Oregon residents. Participants are responsible for paying their own materials fee of $100 and criminal history check fee of $10  for a total cost of $110. Those who are not residents of Oregon may still take the training, but must pay the full tuition of $1,650.

Participants who fail the training may choose to retake the course in its entirety. However, ODOT-TSD will only pay the course tuition one time per person.
