The word is supposed to be "orient." I'm not sure why people think orientate is the word, but it sounds like something dumb people make up to sound intelligent. They need to orient themselves with the English language.
I went to orientation to become orientated.
I'm not redneck-orientated. I know how to speak English.
Everytime I hear the word "Orientated" I want to cringe. It's as bad as hearing the word "ain't" or "warsh."

To become oriented with or to assist someone else with orientating themselves. It's one of those words that sounds better than the grammatically correct version.
"I have to go to my law school next week to get orientated"

"first year students have to come a week early to orientate themselves"
