FAQs for CPR

How soon should I register for a CPR course?
Classes fill fast! Your program deadline will affect your certification needs. Please contact your program manager for the deadline.

How long is my CPR card valid?
Your card is valid for two years.

Do I need a book?
Yes, but only for the Option 2 – Instructor-Led and Hands-On Skills Session and Test. Textbooks are an integral part of CPR education, before, during, and after the course. You may reuse your textbook during renewals or updates until new science guidelines are published.

When will I receive my CPR Card?
It typically takes 2 to 3 weeks to process. If you need proof sooner, your instructor can issue you a temporary card upon successful course completion.

I’ve lost my CPR card; now what?
Request a replacement CPR card from the Carle Education office at 217/383-3022.
