NJ EMT/Paramedic/Air Medics CPR Requirements (N.J.A.C. 8:40A)

Current New Jersey regulations (N.J.A.C. 8:40A) require a valid certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation to the level of the Professional Rescuer or Health Care Provider as issued by the American Heart Association for NJ EMT and Paramedic.

New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) does not recognize CPR training programs that are taught strictly on-line. CPR certification must be obtained through an instructor led program with skills verification, a written examination, and include both one and two rescuer CPR (infant, child and adult), use of bag-valve mask ventilation devices (BVM) and semi-automatic external defibrillator (SAED) training. OEMS does not accept handwritten certification cards or letters from CPR instructors, as proof of CPR certification.
