First Aid Training!
Effective January 2013, Cultural Care Au Pairs complete the American Red Cross Full Service Training in which American Red Cross instructors present the adult and pediatric CPR/AED and First Aid certification program at the Au Pair Training School.
Upon successful completion, au pairs receive a two-year certification, and access to free online skill refreshers and free digital course materials.
The course that the au pairs will take includes:
• Pediatric First Aid: responding to common first aid emergencies, including burns, cuts, poisoning and head, neck and back injuries
• CPR/AED: responding to cardiac and breathing emergencies in adults, children and infants, including the use of automated external defibrillators (AED).
The au pair’s Red Cross First Aid and CPR training, for all participants arriving in January and beyond, will incorporate the latest scientific guidelines, have a low student-to-instructor ratio and be focused on hands-on learning. Two year certification is issued upon successful completion. Other benefits of the Red Cross training for the au pairs include free online skill refreshers and free digital course materials.
