CPR Courses

CPR Courses

CPR is no longer required to renew your National Registry certification. You can use those hours towards your recertification requirements. The National Registry accepts any education that is recognized by your state or is CAPCE accredited.   You can apply your CPR course to any relevant sub-topics in the National, Local, or Individual sections. 

Please note while not required to renew your National Certification, you should check with your State EMS Office in case it may be required to maintain your state license.
