Due to COVID-19, DANB has implemented several new, temporary renewal policies. Please read below for details.

  • CPR Certificate
    Through 12/31/21, DANB temporarily accepted CPR certificates that were earned online without a hands-on component. Starting 1/1/22, all DANB certificants must earn CPR with a hands-on component from the list of DANB-accepted providers.
