Listed below are places that offer Pediatric CPR, Pediatric First Aid, and Health & Safety classes. The list includes individuals and organizations that offer training sessions for Child Care providers. Effective September 1, 1999, all training must be EMSA (Emergency Medical Services Approval) approved or be offered through an accredited college or university. Approved programs will be issuing an EMSA sticker on training class completion cards. For training taken after September 1, 1999, Community Care Licensing will be checking for the EMSA sticker on CPR, First Aid and Health & Safety cards.
CPR & First Aid Class Listing
The pediatric CPR and Pediatric first aid training must be from the American Red Cross (ARC), American Heart Association (AHA) or an Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA) approved training organization. Potential training organizations can call EMSA @ (916) 322-4336 for application now. ARC & AHC are named in the legislation and do not need addition approval. When you enroll in a course or organize a course, it is suggested by CCHP that you confirm that the instructor is an approved trainer from an approved training organization. You can check the training agency by contracting EMSA (916) 322-4336, or CCHP’S new Health line services has telephone numbers of approved agencies available. Providers are encouraged to work with their local Resource & Referral programs and community colleges in their search for the required trainings.
