Upon completion of a certified CPR course, participants are awarded a completion card to show for their efforts. Having a CPR card from the American Heart Association is the gold standard in resuscitation education for health care and non-health care personnel. Completion cards can be printed out using a computer, which enables the instructor to print the cards right after the course is completed.

Sign up for instructor level access with the American Heart Association. This ensures that only current certified instructors are allowed to print cards for students.

Visit the Laerdal website to purchase printable cards for your specific program of instruction. During checkout you will be prompted for your customer number to prove you are a certified instructor.


Once you've received the cards, visit the AHA instructor portal from to download card templates. These will allow you to align the printing fields with the areas on the printable cards.


Open the template and fill in the appropriate information. Print up to three cards per sheet using an ink-jet style printer.
