How long is my certification good for?

Once you have completed a CPR or First Aid course your certification card is valid for 2 years.

Why do I have to pay for a new textbook?

The guidelines for CPR have changed. The textbook you received the last time you took an American Heart Association course has expired. If you have taken a course before April of 2011 then you need to re-take a new course to be current with the new science. The good news is that you won’t have to buy a new textbook when you recertify . The only fee you would have to pay is the course registration fee.

How do I know which course to take?

If you work in the healthcare industry then you will need to take a BLS healthcare provider course. The healthcare provider course is designed for RN’s, EMT’s, Paramedics, CNA’a, LVN’s, RDH’s, Dental & Medical assistants. If you are not in the healthcare industry then you might want to take a Heartsaver AED or CPR course. The Heartsaver courses are designed for the lay rescuer. If you are not sure what course to take than you can call our office at 337-988-4839

What happens if my card is expired?

If your card is expired then you need to re-take another course. Your certification expires on the last day of the renewal month shown on your card.
