Preparing for your First Aid & CPR Training

image in article Preparing for your First Aid & CPR TrainingTeachers and Childcare workers have specific concerns and needs when taking a First Aid and CPR training class. All childcare professionals (including #home childcare, nannies, #daycare-centers, etc.) are required to have a current CPR and First Aid certification. This certification normally needs to be renewed every 2 years. ChildCareEd’s CPR and First Aid programs meet or exceed all state or county licensing recommendations and/or requirements. We are currently approved by 270 different agencies across the US and have approvals in all 50 states! Our instructors will provide you with more than just the information but will help to instill the confidence that you will be able to handle any #emergency.
