[Updated October 20, 2021]
Effective October 15th and until further notice, the Child Development Division has re-implemented allowance of fully online Infant/Child CPR and Pediatric First Aid.
You may choose a fully online Infant/Child CPR and Pediatric First Aid training offered by an approved training organization (American Heart Association, American Red Cross, or American Health and Safety Institute [HSI]). Documentation will be verified and entered into your BFIS Quality and Credential Account by Northern Lights at CCV staff. This also applies to new staff that do not have certification in Infant/Child CPR and Pediatric First Aid.
For more information about the criteria for First Aid and CPR trainings, visit the Child Development Division’s Child Care Training Requirements page at: https://dcf.vermont.gov/cdd/professional-development/requirements
Tips to Ensure your Training will Count
- Make sure the training is offered by one of the three approved training organizations (American Heart Association, American Red Cross, or American Health and Safety Institute [HSI])
- Make sure you will receive documentation of certification that includes the date of the training, the type of training, the expiration date for the certification, and the name of the approved training organization issuing the certification.
- If you find a certification option and want to know if it will meet the child care licensing requirement, please contact your Northern Lights Resource Advisor for support
