Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) 419A.092 mandates prior to reviewing cases, all persons appointed to serve as local citizen review board members must participate in a 16-hour orientation training program established and approved by the Supreme Court of the State of Oregon.  In addition, each local volunteer board member must receive eight hours of training annually.

Volunteer board members are encouraged to engage in training and education in five areas of core competency relative to CRB reviews.  These five areas are:

  • Cultural Competence
  • The Review Process
  • Policy and Systems Advocacy
  • The Law
  • Physical and Mental Health of Children and Youth

In addition, there are numerous training opportunities available which can be relevant to CRB reviews. volunteer board members are encouraged to check with their field staff member if they have any questions about applicable training topics, or how to access training library resources.
