New two-part CPR course available for foster homes

Most essential courses the Alliance offers have been transitioned to virtual delivery, including many with traditionally hands-on components. The “CPR and First Aid Recertification for Foster Parents” course is now part of that category and is being offered as a two-part eLearning/in-person training.

This course is for current licensed foster homes that need recertification. The 4.5-hour eLearning portion (available in English and Spanish) covers CPR, first aid, and AED usage, as well as knowledge needed when dealing with the range of problems that can arise from minor instances such as cuts and headaches to the more serious emergencies such as allergic reactions, heart attacks and strokes. That is followed by an in-person skills evaluation portion. Due to limitations for classroom trainings related to Covid-19 public health considerations, the CPR skills evaluation is currently on hold. You can complete the eLearnings and submit the certificate for licensure. Then, when the CPR skills assessment is opened again, you will be required to complete the skills assessment to be certified in CPR. A certificate will be issued once both parts are successfully completed. Please check back here to see when in-person classes will be scheduled.

Please note: Users must be logged in to the catalog (create a profile first if needed) to see the registration button.
