Are you won­der­ing “How do I become Infant and Child (Pedi­atric) CPR Cer­ti­fied?” Keep read­ing for more infor­ma­tion and resources.

Vir­tu­al­ly all states have require­ments regard­ing infant and child (pedi­atric) CPR cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for care­givers. Make sure you fol­low your state’s spe­cif­ic reg­u­la­tions. CDA can­di­dates also need a cur­rent CPR and first-aid cer­tifi­cate to obtain or renew their CDA credentials.

So, how do you become infant and child (Pedi­atric) CPR cer­ti­fied? You will need hands-on train­ing to learn the steps of pedi­atric CPR. The fol­low­ing sources pro­vide pedi­atric CPR training:

The Amer­i­can Heart Asso­ci­a­tion
Amer­i­can Red Cross
Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Council

All adults who care for chil­dren should be trained in car­diopul­monary resus­ci­ta­tion (CPR), first-aid, and injury pre­ven­tion. You should take a course in CPR and first-aid from a cer­ti­fied instruc­tor before tak­ing respon­si­bil­i­ty for the care of a child. Be pre­pared to act quick­ly, calm­ly, and appro­pri­ate­ly in emer­gency situations.
