Trainings are constantly being developed and there (as of the writing of this on August 16, 2018) are five (5) scheduled trainings: Eugene, Woodburn, Bend, Roseburg, and Portland.

As an example description of one of the trainings happening in November:
"This is the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Job Developer Orientation Training (JDOT) which satisfies the VR Job Placement Contract training requirement. The content of this course will focus on current Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) regulations and supported employment requirements as they pertain to VR. This course is intended to develop knowledge and skills for job developers in their collaboration with VR Counselors, community partners and participants. It will also provide information on best practices through the VR and job placement process in order to enhance the provision of quality services to our participants. Information presented will support the development of successful employer relationships, job placement techniques, successful job placements and job stabilization for all VR participants receiving job placement services."
