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 Environmental Health Registration Board oversees the practices of environmental health specialists and waste water specialists.

The Environmental Health Registration Board consists of seven members appointed by the governor:

  • Four registered environmental health specialists with at least four years of experience in environmental sanitation
  • One physician licensed to practice medicine or surgery who has an emphasis in public health
  • One representative of the food or food/alcohol beverage retail industry
  • One public member

Terms of office are four years, but a member serves at the pleasure of the governor. A member holds office until the appointment and qualification of a successor. A member is eligible for reappointment. If a person serves two consecutive full terms, a period of at least four years must elapse before the person is again eligible for appointment to serve on the board.
