Be aware There is a lot of fraud in EMSA Childcare Training , Instructors that do not provide EMSA compliance training. Don’t take a chance Children’s Safety is to important!
Every two (2) years, EMSA Licensed child care providers must renew their training by completing 4 hours of pediatric first aid and 4 hours of pediatric CPR including adult CPR and infant, child, and adult AED training with other required topics that must be covered in the training.

NO ONE CAN LEGALLY OFFER SHORTER CLASSES AND BE IN COMPLIANCE – NO ONE- not American Heart Association or the American Red Cross

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, extension 434. Remember it is all about the Safety of Children!

Subject: RE: American Heart Association and American Red Cross Exception

Both the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross (ARC) must provide the child care training according to the EMSA standards. They must abide by the EMSA standards for training. They must still provide the 8-hour child care provider pediatric first aid and CPR course. If they do not, then they can be reported to the AHA government liaison. If you have any details about the AHA program that is shorting hours, please send EMSA that information, and we can forward that to the AHA liaison. The same goes for the ARC. There is a liaison for that program as well. You can send the information to Mark Olivas, his e-mail address is:Mark.olivas@emsa.ca.gov



May I take shortened classes in child care First Aid and CPR, since I am only renewing my training?

  • No. The training for child care First Aid and CPR is required to be a total of 8 hours (4 hours for first aid, and four hours for CPR) EACH time a child care provider takes the course. The child care First Aid and CPR training must be repeated every two years, at the minimum.
  • The Preventive Health and Safety Practices course is a one-time only requirement and must be at least 7 hours long. [Beginning January 1, 2016, the Preventive Health and Safety Practices course will be 8 hours long.]

May I take online courses for the child care provider training?

  • No. On-line courses are not allowed for any of the child care training, per the statute that governs this particular training requirement. This includes blended training provided by National Training Company such as American Heart Association, Medic First Aid or others – all training the full 8 hours must be in a class room.

All of our safety training programs meet California EMSA, OSHA, State and Federal safety requirements. Our goal is to provide the best quality, fun, low stress, and low cost but thorough CPR training at all times.
