The Oregon Permit Technicians Association offers scholarships that we awarded annually.
There are three categories for which you may apply. It is OPTA’s goal to give scholarships in at least two different categories, but if applications are received in only one category, two scholarships will be awarded from that category. You may apply for only one scholarship per year.
To be eligible for one of the scholarships, the applicant must be a current OPTA member in good standing, complete the application, and email or mail it to the OPTA Board of Directors along with your essay and recommendation letter.
First Category – Test Reimbursement: Reimbursement of the fee for taking and passing the ICC Permit Technician Certification or Code Specialist. To qualify you must apply and be approved prior to taking your exam. Once you have passed the certification test, provide documentation to the OPTA Board of Directors for reimbursement of fees paid.
Scholarship Amount: Amount of Current Test
Second Category – OPTA Offered Education: Tuition for up to two days of education, at our annual conference, education conference, or virtual class.
Scholarship Amount: Amount of current tuition, approximately $225/day
Third Category – Continuing Education: For the person who wants to advance their career by taking additional courses at an accredited college or university. The successful applicant will enroll in an accredited school, submit proof of payment, and OPTA will reimburse up to $500.00.
Scholarship Amount: Up to $500.00
Mission Statement: “To develop a higher standard of professionalism in education, training and unity among jurisdictions”.
