Once you have been CPR certified you’ll need to keep in mind that the certificate is valid for 3 years only. After that, the certification is no longer in effect. Getting re-certified for CPR is fast and easy as long as you take the course while your certificate is still valid. Keep an eye on the date of expiry on your card and schedule your recertification course before time runs out.
