Professional Development Reimbursement Program (PDRP)
- All AFSCME-represented employees working 18.5 or more hours per 80-hour pay period are eligible for reimbursement of up to $1,200 per fiscal year for qualified professional-development expenses.

- Classes for academic credit not eligble for reimbursement by OHSU Employee Tuition Benefit (ETB) program.
- Textbooks required for class.
- Continuing education units (CEUs).
- Professional association conferences, workshops, and seminars.
- Courses that lead to a professional or technical certification.
