All caregivers on duty must have a valid certification for pediatric first aid and pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Pediatric first aid and CPR courses must be in-person training with a certified instructor, and are in addition to the required annual training hours, each year.

Certification must be obtained by attending course(s) provided in a classroom type setting unless courses are not available within sixty (60) miles by road of the child care location. In these situations, the caregiver may receive instruction in pediatric first aid and pediatric CPR procedures through distance learning training videos and/or other materials approved by the department. For department approval of distance learning training, the caregiver must contact their local licensing office. If the distance course is approved, the caregiver will still have to complete and pass the first available pediatric first aid and pediatric CPR certification course offered within sixty (60) miles by road of the child care location.

Applicants applying to become licensed must provide their caregivers certifications for pediatric first aid and pediatric CPR prior to approval for licensure.

Pediatric first aid and pediatric CPR certifications must be maintained throughout the child care facility’s licensing period. The child care facility must review and post pediatric first aid and pediatric CPR instructions in an area where child care is conducted or make them readily available.

The Child Care Licensing Specialist (CCLS) will check the facility’s personnel records during on-site inspections to ensure each caregiver is in compliance with pediatric first aid and pediatric CPR certification
