If you are a current licensed foster parent and have an expired CPR certificate and need to obtain recertification this course is for you. The course is a blended online course with two parts – an online eLearning and a skill based in person class. The CPR/First Aid online course provides the knowledge needed when dealing with the range of problems that can arise from minor everyday instances such as cuts and headaches to the more serious emergencies such as allergic reactions, heart attacks and strokes. Once you have completed the online eLearning, the final part is the skill evaluation with an instructor where you will get to apply and practice the techniques you have learned. A certificate will be issued once both parts are successfully completed and will be valid for two years.
You must be a current Washington State licensed foster parent to take this course.
PLEASE NOTE: Each participant MUST REGISTER SEPARATELY in order to receive their certification. If a couple or group plans to complete the training together, each member must still register and go through the online course individually. You must be logged in and on the course page to see the registration button.
- ProFirstAid: CPR + First Aid for All Ages (eLearning) - 4.5 hours
ProFirstAid is a blended training where students complete an online course for CPR, First Aid, and AED usage and then later schedule a skill evaluation with an instructor. Once the instructor has confirmed a passing score, the student will receive their electronic CPR Certification card via email with an option to request a physical copy mailed to them within 7-10 business days. CPR certification is valid for 2 years.
- ProFirstAid: CPR Skills Evaluation - 1 hour
Note: Due to limitations for classroom trainings related to COVID-19 public health considerations, the CPR skills evaluation is currently on hold per DCYF. Those seeking their recertification for their expired CPR certification may complete the CPR eLearning and submit their certificates for licensure. Once the CPR skills assessment is opened back up, you will be required to return here to complete the skills assessment to be re-certified in CPR.
CPR and First Aid Recertification for Foster Parents follows the latest American Heart Association and ECC/ILCOR guidelines and is nationally accredited.
The eLearnings are available in English or Spanish.
