Be a Smart Consumer of First Aid and CPR Training

Your professional development as an early educator and child care provider is important. Meeting North Carolina state requirements for First Aid and CPR training is one part of your professional development. You want to spend your time and money wisely.

While distance learning (pre-recorded training) is not permitted for CPR or First Aid, a blended learning course (including face-to-face and virtual instruction) is permitted; so long as the course received is from an approved training organization and the student’s competency has been evaluated by the instructor. For the course to be valid, meeting NC Child Care Requirements, a completion card/certificate is required that reflects successful completion of the course, following the approved organization’s standards for the specific course.

First aid and CPR instructors must be certified by an approved agency. If you have questions about a trainer, please contact the First Aid and/or CPR agency to express your concerns and confirm the trainer’s status.

CPR and First Aid training shall be renewed on or before expiration of the certification. The training must include content appropriate for the ages of children in care. CPR and First Aid training can no longer be counted toward on-going training hours (contact hours).
