Updated: May 4, 2023



"(a) Each caregiver and the child-care center director must have a current certificate of training with an expiration or renewal date in pediatric first aid with rescue breathing and choking.


(b) Each caregiver and the child-care center director must have a current certificate of training with an expiration or renewal date in pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). A new caregiver does not have to have a current certificate in pediatric CPR before having unsupervised access to a child in care. However, the operation must have at least one employee or caregiver on the premises while children are in care that has a current certificate in pediatric CPR. The pediatric CPR:


(1) Must adhere to the guidelines for CPR for a layperson established by the American Heart Association, and consist of a curriculum that includes use of a CPR manikin and both written and hands-on skill-based instruction, practice, and testing; and


(2) May be provided through blended learning that utilizes online technology, including self-instructional training, as long as the criteria in paragraph (1) of this subsection is met."
