CPR & First Aid Classes

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 and approved by  the American Heart Association for all administrators, coaches, physical educators, teachers, 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.
