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 2010 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 long is my certification good for?
Once you have completed a CPR or First Aid course your certification card is valid for 2 years.
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 rescuer. For teachers and day care providers please check our Fist Aid, CPR & AED.

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. Every 2 years!
