CPR & First Aid Training


The Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office offers training for MEDIC FIRST AID BasicPlus CPR, AED (Automated External Defibrillator), and First AID. Committing to additional time, the Medic First Aid Infant and Child Supplement can be included following Adult CPR/First Aid that deals specifically with the treatment of life-threatening events involving children. The goal of this program is to help you gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to manage a medical emergency until more advanced help is available.

The program is designed for all administrators, coaches, physical educators, teachers, and instructional aides and secretaries responsible for first aid in the schools. All candidates for a teaching credential must complete this training (including the infant-child CPR supplement) before student teaching. Participants need to attend just one day of training.  While this training class is open to the public, preference will be given to educators if the class is full.
