Pharmacists: We are accepted by the SD Board of Pharmacy because we are ACPE accredited
SECTION 40-43-130 (B) Each licensed pharmacist, as a condition of an active status license renewal, shall complete fifteen hours (1.5 CEU’s) of American Council on Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE) accredited continuing pharmacy education or continuing medical education (CME), Category I,
First aid; (12) Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). CPR certification is required prior to a staff member being left unsupervised to care for children; and Staff person trained in first aid and CPR must be on site during hours of operation CPR CPR can be crucial to the life of a child or staff person. All staff are required to have infant and child CPR training within 90 days after the date of employment and their CPR certification is to remain valid from that point forward. But, one staff on-site at all times is required to be certified in CPR. Staff caring for children are to be supervised by an individual who is certified in CPR at all times until his/her CPR certification is completed. The regulations require hands-on skill testing as part of the CPR training. For example, a staff may be able to obtain CPR coursework on-line but would be required to complete the hands-on skill test in person. There are some on-line CPR courses that are strictly knowledge testing, that do not offer hands-on skill testing, those programs do not meet the intent of the CPR requirement and would not be counted as part of the training hours required for licensing requirements.
If you prefer sit-down, in-person training for ACLS, we have you covered.
