CPR / First Aid - Adult, Child & Infant

For those that have already had hands-on CPR & First Aid training, the National CPR Foundation is a great website that will allow you to renew your certification.  For only $20.95 per person you get a certificate and 2 cards in the mail.

If you are new to foster care, or just want the extra practice of hands on training we suggest that you visit the Red Cross Training website.  You can search for classes near you.

Water Safety Education Training

If you have a body of water near your home you are required to have this training as part of your training hours.  We have found a wonderful website, Face Up First, where you can go and complete your training.  At $8 for one person or $12 for two people on the training certificate, it is the best deal that we have found for the training necessary.
