A question for my EMS friends out there...

How long does your CPR card stay valid? Is it one year or two? Yes, I should know this, but I don't have my card handy, and I have to have a valid one to start work. If it's one year I need to find a class ASAP.

Thanks ya'll :)

Well it depends on who issued you the card. An American Red Cross CPR card is valid for one year while an American Heart Association card and Emergency Care and Safety Institute both are valid for two years. Hope this helps.

my AHA card is good for 2 years, we can recertify with our career bretheren 2 times a year though. So mine probably will never expire.

AHA = 2 years.

AHA is what I have. I just panicked a little when I saw that red cross was every year.

Thanks ya'll :)

Now, to get a copy of the damn thing.
