Course Overview

In the state of California, everyone that works in a dental office, is required to be CPR Certified. Additionally, if you are applying to become a Registered Dental Assistant, you are required to complete and show proof of completion of a basic life support course offered by an instructor approved by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association.

At OC Dental Academy, our CPR for the Healthcare Provider course meet all necessary requirements.
