What CPR Cards Does the State of Alaska Accept for EMT Certification

A valid CPR credential includes CPR cards, course rosters, or a letter from the CPR Instructor attesting to the applicants successful completion of a CPR program.  The card or letter must clearly indicate that the course included adult, child, and infant CPR and airway obstruction relief maneuvers, including two rescuer CPR and barrier devices. The following CPR credentials are acceptable for EMT certification.

Programs that do not include all of the necessary components or that offer a card valid for greater than two years do not meet the CPR requirements for EMT certification. Requirements for CPR certification and training are specified in 7 AAC 26.985 (d) of the Alaska EMS Regulations.
