Includes the above topics/skills, but concentrates on those illnesses/injuries commonly experienced by CHILDREN in families, childcare, church nurseries, sports activities, etc.

NOTE:  Both AHA and ASHI Pediatric and Adult CPR/AED and First Aid Courses meet the training requirements for Childcare Licensure in Kentucky.  Bloodborne Pathogens training can also be added.

NOTE: We do NOT apologize for providing a slightly longer and very thorough First Aid Course.  Please don’t settle for “Overviews” when someone’s life (maybe yours!) depends on quick, initial action/competent care in a life-threatening emergency when seconds count.
