Child Care Training

Child Care Training (First Aid, CPR & Preventive Health and Safety)

Child Care Provider training consists of 16 hours of training for first-time licensees. The hours of training must be completed as follows:

  • 4 hours of Pediatric First Aid
  • 4 hours of Pediatric CPR/AED
  • 8 hours of Preventive Health and Safety Training

Every two (2) years, child care providers must renew their training by completing 4 hours of pediatric First Aid and 4 hours of pediatric CPR. If an instructor provides a course in fewer hours than required, the training is not in compliance with the law. Report this situation to the EMS Authority at (916) 322-4336.

Before agreeing to pay for a training course in pediatric First Aid, Pediatric CPR, or Preventive Health practices, ask to see the training program or instructors certification card or other documents authorizing them to train child care providers.

We only off the First Aid and CPR/AED portion. Yellow sticker from CA-EMSA will be provided at the end of the class
