In response to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine's declared state of emergency related to COVID-19, HB 404 provides an additional extension beyond the initial extension provided by HB 197. EMS and fire certificates that expired March 9, 2020 through April 1, 2021, receive an automatic extension that will end July 1, 2021. The extension period will be added to all impacted certificates. Certificate holders who have met requirements to renew may file renewal application(s) online.
The extension will not change your certification expiration date or continuing education requirements for the current or next certification cycle. Additional information will be sent to all certificate holders impacted by the extension and posted on this site.
