Complete the First Aid/CPR and AED Certification Program Application, mark the desired training date(s), and return three weeks prior to the date(s) requested. All applications will be considered. A maximum of 4 individuals per program per training will be accepted, however, additional participants may be allowed based on availability. Participants must be employed at a licensed early childhood program that serves children 6 weeks to 5 years of age. We understand that sometimes, problems arise.

The Pre-Service program supports early childhood programs with the employment process. Pre-Service provides a solid training on Minimum Licensing Regulations and behavior guidance.   This is not in lieu of the 8-hour online training provided by the state.  However, it supports the program by providing activities and open discussion.
