**** Above list is not all inclusive but are the most popular Nationally Authorized Branded Cards****
All CPR Customer Student, Trainees should:
Ask to see the type of card prior to paying for your class, Ask which agency produced the card
Understand that a lower price point of $20 to $35 is a clue that the card is self created and fake
Just because they include a statement on the card saying “American Heart Guidelines “does not make the card official in any way.
Why does my job accept the fake card? Usually they (your job) are driven by low price and assume the fake card is suffice. They are not following the State mandate on acceptable and authorized CPR programs & cards.
