Pennsylvania Department of State Temporarily Waives CPR Rules
For the duration of the pandemic, the State Board of Dentistry will consider any CPR or BSL certification that was in effect on March 17, 2020, to remain in effect through December 31, 2020. For anyone needing to obtain new CPR certification during the pandemic (as a condition of initial licensure, for example, or for purposes of reactivation), the Board will waive any requirement that the certification be obtained via “hands-on” or “contact” methods. The Board will accept completion of online CPR certification. For subsequent renewal in 2021, however, individuals will be required to comply with the existing regulations and use board-approved providers of “hands-on” certification training.
The governor granted a suspension of restrictions that limited the ability of licensees to take classes online or participate in distance-learning opportunities for the current biennial renewal period to permit all licensees to complete their continuing education online during the COVID-19
