Students learn how to use an EPi pen, bandaging, glove removal, splinting, and how to conduct an interview of an injured victim. Other topics include: bee stings, allergic reactions, snake bites, shock, amputations, seizures, and other first-aid emergencies. This course is First-aid only. If you need to take both Pediatric CPR and First-aid, please register for that class. You can also take CPR on one day and then Pediatric First-aid on another day.
Who should take this class
People who own a family day care in their home or child care center staff who need EMSA certification.
After successful completion, students will receive the official American Heart Association Pediatric First-aid certification card, which is valid for two years and the firstaid book.
There are a few companies in the Bay Area who claim their courses are EMSA approved, but they not approved. In order to receive valid certification, you must either take the 4 hour EMSA first-aid course and receive a sticker, or take the 4 hour Pediatric first-aid class by the American Heart Association. Safety Training Seminars is listed on the EMSA’s website of approved vendors for this class. Also online first-aid classes are not accepted by EMSA.
According to State Law, the Pediatric First-aid class must be 4 hours long. If you find a class that is less than 4 hours, it will not be accepted by licensing and you would be forced to take the class again and pay for the class again. It does not matter if you are renewing or if it is your first time taking first-aid.
Safety Training Seminars is a member of the Better Business Bureau and the Chamber of Commerce. The American Heart Association license number is CA-20784. The EMSA license number is DC-0204. Our training center can be found as an approved vendor on the EMSA’s website. Safety Training Seminars has been providing these EMSA certified classes since 1993. Also, students do not need to pay for the training until the day of the class.
Payment can be made on the day of the course by cash or a check made out to STS. Credit and debit cards are not accepted.
We have a very relaxed cancellation policy. You only pay for the class if you arrive. If you do not show up, you do not pay. However, if you want to cancel for any reason, please email us back so we can give your spot to someone else. Thanks.
Class Cancellation Policy
We do not cancel our first-aid classes – even if only one person is registered. I know some other first-aid companies cancel their courses the day before the training, if there is low attendance. But we do not cancel our courses.
Snacks & Coffee
We have will granola bars, tea, coffee, and soda in the classroom.
Wear comfortable clothes since you will be practicing on the floor. If you have back, knee, or other problems, please let your instructor know so that you can practice on a table. In the Bay Area, we have lots of people who have English as a second or third language. Our instructor are very nice and friendly and we will help you out. Our instructors speak a few languages like Spanish, French, Danish, and Swedish. Children are not allowed in the classroom. Please arrive to class 10 minutes before course start time. Remove lipstick and lip gloss before practicing on the manikins. We do not have any formal lunch breaks but there will be breaks throughout the class.
