Which Adult CPR and Basic First Aid do I need? And where can I get it?
You are required to have a valid Adult CPR certification for your original license application.
Also, you are required to have a Basic First Aid course completed within a year of submitting your application.
The American Red Cross, Heart Association, and PADI all offer classroom courses that will meet both these requirements.
How do I submit my Adult CPR and Basic First Aid card/certificate?
You simply attach a photocopy of your Adult CPR and Basic First Aid card or certificate with the application package. There MUST be a course code or approval number on it. If not, it will be denied by the Coast Guard.
Can I use my expired CPR and Basic First Aid card?
When submitting to the Coast Guard and using your license in a professional capacity, you will need a valid Adult CRP and Basic First Aid card.
