NARM Policy Updates March, 2022

NRP Policy Updates

Due to the current difficulty finding in-person NRP Instructor-led courses, NARM will accept the verification of passing the NRP Essentials (Lessons 1-4) exam without the hands-on class until January 1, 2023.

Applications or Recertifications received after January 1, 2023 will be required to have the complete documentation of NRP Essentials (Exam and hands-on). This policy may be revised after January 1, 2023

The CPR requirement is still in effect and requires the full course (must include BLS if taking only NRP Essentials 1-4).

Highlights of 8th Edition AAP NRP:
There are two new levels of NRP provider learning:
  • NRP Essentials (Lessons 1–4) Includes skills through face-mask ventilation and laryngeal mask insertion.
  • NRP Advanced (Lessons 1–11) Includes chest compressions and resuscitation skills for term and preterm newborns.
Read complete details of 8th edition NRP program here.

NOTE: Since January 1, 2022 only the 8th edition classes are available, but NARM will continue to accept the 7th edition NRP card as long as it is still valid.

NARM’s New Renewal Deadline

In recent years, expiration dates of Certifications have been the CPM’s birth date. However, NARM has provided a grace period from the actual birth date through the end of the birth month.

With integration of the Certemy portal, this grace period is being phased out. Effective June 1, 2022, expiration dates will now be the actual date listed for Certification or Preceptor Registration.

NARM’s Online Application Program

Have you registered with Certemy? Certemy is the new online program to process Certification, Recertification, and Preceptor applications. In December 2020, NARM sent an email with information on how to log in to the Certemy system. If you haven’t logged in or need assistance, please email dan@narm.org.
