PEDIATRIC FIRST AID & CPR

Current First Aid and CPR cards are required for all individuals working in licensed programs. The Nurturing Center offers this course through the American Heart Association as a hybrid. Individuals will take the online course work and register for a skills session through The Nurturing Center front desk. You must complete both parts of the course to receive your completion certificate (your Pediatric/Adult CPR/FA card). You will need to complete the Pediatric CPR/FA online course, including ALL optional modules (adult CPR/AED) and then bring the completion form to their skills test. Once both components have been completed, instructors will assign the accepted card to the participant.
