COVID-19 Resources: For Providers
CPR training online will expire on June 30, 2022
What does this mean?
If you took an online-only CPR class between March 24, 2020 and June 30, 2022, it will be accepted for training credit in the Oregon Registry Online (ORO). When it is time for the next renewal of your CPR/First Aid certification, you must complete CPR training with in-person instruction. All CPR classes taken on or after July 1, 2022, must have the in-person training component.
The temporary rule for Registered Family, Certified Family, and Certified Center states: “an online-only CPR certification obtained between March 24, 2020 and June 30, 2022 will be accepted to meet the training requirement until the certification expires.”
On July 1, 2022 the OARs revert back to the regular rule language, which states: “Caregivers must have current certification in first aid and infant and child cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). CPR training must have practical hands-on instruction. CPR courses that involve an online component with hands-on instruction may be accepted. Strictly online CPR training is not acceptable.”

Note: Staff and volunteers of school-based programs are not required to be boosted with vaccinations as described by being “up to date.” It is required that school-based program staff and volunteers be fully vaccinated. “Fully vaccinated” means having received both doses of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or one dose of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine and at least 14 days have passed since the individual’s final dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
