BHR Training manages CityLearner, the citywide learning administration and tracking system, and partners with other learning institutions and entities to provide workforce development and training opportunities. We also offer programs in mentorship, Work Study,  leadership skills and talent development as part of the City of Portland’s Employer of Choice initiative through various agencies, colleges and universities.

CityLearner, the City’s online system for managing employee training and development programs, allows employees to access their personal training history and complete eLearning courses as well as browse the catalog, view, and book courses.
