First Aid/CPR/Bloodborne Pathogens Training During COVID-19 Emergency

This communication is for those professions overseen by the Health Licensing Office which require First Aid / CPR / Bloodborne Pathogens (or any mix of these as stated in Oregon Administrative Rule) for initial licensure/certification/registration (authorization), or for those needing to obtain recertification to renew your authorization:

During the Governor’s declared state of emergency due to COVID-19, the requirement to be certified to gain your initial authorization or to renew your authorization remains in place, however; the hands-on skill competency assessment by a qualified instructor can be waived and you are allowed to take all required courses online. If available, courses can still be taken in person if you are able to be in compliance with the Governor’s executive orders when doing so.

If you need to obtain your First Aid / CPR / Bloodborne Pathogens certification (or any mix of these), or get recertified, please refer to our approved provider list to inquire if these organizations are able to provide you with an online course or a remote-in option with an instructor.

About the board

The Board of Athletic Trainers oversees the practice of athletic trainers in the State of Oregon. Athletic trainers prevent, recognize and evaluate athletic injuries and provide immediate care, rehabilitation and reconditioning services to athletes. They work in cooperation with physicians and other allied health personnel and serve as members of the athletic health care team at secondary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs and other athletic health care settings.

The Board of Athletic Trainers consists of five members appointed by the governor:

  • Three members must be athletic trainers who have practiced continuously in this state for the three years prior to the date of appointment.
  • One member must be a licensed physician.
  • One member must be a member of the general public who is not an athletic trainer.

Terms in office are four years, with an appointee eligible to serve a maximum of two consecutive terms or until a successor is appointed.
