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 Oregon Board of Denture Technology oversees the practice of denturists. Denturists construct, repair, reline, reproduce, duplicate, supply, fit or alter removable prosthetic dental appliances, otherwise known as dentures. In the fitting process, denturists also take impressions, bite registrations, try-ins or insertions. Denturists provide full dentures to replace complete sets of original teeth that are missing in the upper, lower or both sections of the mouth, or partial dentures, which fit sections of the mouth in which some of the original teeth remain.

The Board of Denture Technology consists of seven members appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Oregon Senate:

  • four active licensed denturists
  • one Oregon licensed dentist in active practice
  • two public members who do not possess the professional qualifications of other members and who are not a spouse, domestic partner, child, parent or sibling of an active licensed denturist or dentist

The term of office of each member is three years, but a member serves at the pleasure of the governor.
