State of Oregon: Pharmaceutical Representative Licensing

The Department of Consumer and Business Services Insurance Regulation has established rules for the administration of the pharmaceutical representative licensing program created by 2021 Senate Bill 763 in Oregon. The approval process for educational providers and courses has just been announced and CMR Institute is pursuing approval.

Currently, Oregon is recognizing any courses approved by the City of Chicago for those who need to move forward with licensure requirements. Any individual who is required to meet the Bill’s requirements may complete CMR Institute’s approved courses for the City of Chicago (attached HERE) and submit them to the Oregon authority using this form and a copy of the CMR Institute completion certificate earned at the completion of the approved eLearning course.
