Hi ,
I was teaching a cpr course and a student asked me for a temp cpr card until the cards came . I never heard of temp cpr card ( although that sounds brilliant). Has anyone heard of them or know how to obtain them? Thank you.

Never heard of them. Every CPR course I have taken I was handed the card at the end of the class so I would never have considered there to be a need for temporary as I had my real one. Perhaps a receipt with passed and your signature would suffice until they get the real card.

There isnt a temp CPR card. I've always either gotten them at the end of class or had to wait until the regional office printed them and sent them to my organization. Why do they need a temp card?

They are emt's and their certs are going to expire at the end of the month . I told them that on ave it takes around 2 wks for the cards to come in via mail. They said their boss won't let them be on the trucks without it.

Unfortunately there isnt a temp card. Given the time frame and the fact that thier cards expire at the end of the month...maybe they should have been more proactive and taken the recert class earlier than a week or so before thier cards expire. Just a thought ....
