Family and Friends CPR & Home Safety
Westside Nannies partners with Save a Little Life to host CPR and First Aid classes for parents, nannies as well as family and friends! Save a Little Life is a well-known and highly respected company offering the very best in Pediatric CPR, First Aid, and safety classes.
CPR certification and knowledge of First Aid is expected of all professional nannies and is highly valued by parents. Maintaining certification demonstrates a nanny's commitment to professionalism as well as to the health and safety of the children in her care. Westside Nannies requires all caregivers placed through the agency to be CPR certified. Certification is valid for 2 years from the date of the class. This course includes use of an automatic defibrillator (AED). Upon completion, attendees will receive a Course Certification Card which is valid for 2 years.
This course begins with an essential review of safe practices in the home to lower risk of common household accidents.
A discussion of what CPR is, and under what circumstances it may be required, is next, followed by a demonstration of the basic skills.
Life-sized mannequins are provided to each participant. The instructor will then assist them in becoming familiar with the skill set by introducing various scenarios in which a parent might find themselves. Different sized mannequins representing the various stages of childhood are available for that purpose.
Students will also receive crucial information on the basics of airway obstruction and instruction on how to remove an obstruction.
There is ample time for questions both during and after class, if necessary.
The course is a one-time program, please allow up to 2.5 hours. Certification is valid for 2 years from the class date. Pediatric CPR and First Aid is the primary focus of this class (includes Adult CPR instruction). This is a custom-designed course that offers parents, caregivers and family members the best of Save A Little Life‘s most comprehensive Pediatric Certification and Non-Certification courses.
