COVID 19 Response

Message from the Regional Training Center:
Governor Brown has issued an extension of the state of emergency through July 6th, 2020 extending the stay at home order.  There is discussion about a roll out plan to begin opening Oregon. As of Monday May 11th the RTC is operating under the following limitations:

No more than 10 people will be allowed at the Regional Training Center at one time.

The administrative staff will ask you to remain outside the doors until one person leaves, staying at least 6 feet apart.

  • No food or beverage can be consumed on site other than water. That includes brewed coffee or microwave use.
  • You must wear a mask at all times while in the Regional Training Center. We do not have a supply on hand so please come prepared.
  • If you are coughing or show signs of illness please stay at home until symptoms subside. We ask that you do not come to the office when feeling under the weather.
  • All people will be asked to sanitize their hands upon entry to the office.

At this time we are still serving members remotely and the Regional Training Center Staff is committed to respond to emails and voicemails promptly. Simply send your request to and your email will be routed to the administrative staff.
