In conjunction with EMS Safety Services, HSI has determined that the California EMSA Child Care regulatory approval for EMS Safety's CPR, AED and First Aid for Childcare Providers training program will not be renewed come May 31, 2019.
EMS Safety Instructors may no longer use EMS Safety's CPR, AED and First Aid for Childcare Providers program to meet the training requirements for childcare providers as described in the California Code of Regulation (Title 22, Div. 9, Ch. 1.1) Training standards for Child Care Providers
However, if you do wish to continue to teach childcare providers to meet the California Code of Regulations, you may establish a MEDIC First Aid Training Center and teach MEDIC First Aid, which remains EMSA approved. The process is simple and we would be happy to assist you. Contact your EMS Safety account representative for more information.
All EMS Safety Instructors with the CA Childcare certification will be removed from the EMSA Child Care affiliates list on May 31, 2019 and will no longer have the ability to purchase EMSA stickers for EMS Safety CPR, AED and First Aid classes and can no longer issue EMS Safety CPR, AED and First Aid for Childcare Providers certification cards for childcare providers in California. (You may continue to teach school bus drivers until September 30, 2022)
Additionally, if you do not choose to establish a MEDIC First Aid Training Center, you will need to utilize any EMSA stickers before May 31, 2019.
EMS Safety Childcare certification cards with EMSA course completion stickers must be issued by a currently certified EMS Safety Childcare Instructor within 21 calendar days after the training is completed. Rosters for EMS Safety Childcare training sessions must be submitted to EMSA within 30 calendar days of course completion. These rosters must include the serial number listed on the course completion sticker that was issued to each student who successfully completed the training. No EMS Safety Childcare training may be conducted and no EMS Safety Childcare certification cards with EMSA course completion stickers may be issued after May 31, 2019.
