Approved CPR Courses

The WVBOP had issued a waiver for CPR cards expiring during COVID-19.  This waiver will expire December 28, 2020.  The WV Board of Pharmacy has reviewed materials regarding extensions from the American Heart Association (AHA).  The AHA has determined that their certifications are not to be extended past October 2020.  Therefore, the WV BOP has voted to require that CPR cards be renewed and current.  Recognizing the difficulties continuing with COVID-19, the WV BOP will accept online courses during COVID-19 that do not have a “hand-on” component, but are AHA-compliant.
