Pediatric Advanced Life Support Training for Childcare Providers

If you operate a are a nursing student or work frequently with kids, it’s important that you stay up-to-day on the latest CPR techniques. CPR certifications for childcare providers are required by most states. Small children typically place items in their mouths, which increases the risk of choking. Childcare providers can receive certification from a medical center or invite CPR trainers to their locations. While basic CPR is crucial, you might consider additional training, such as pediatric advanced life support training or a PEARS class.


Pediatric advanced life support training or PEARS training isn’t required by states, but having this advance knowledge can prepare you for life-threatening emergencies. If an infant or child suffers from cardiac arrest while in your care, or if you need to use a defibrillator on an infant or child, this training course will fully prepare you.


Many things can go wrong when working with children. A child can sustain a life-threatening injury or experience a severe allergic reaction. It can take several minutes for an ambulance to arrive. With pediatric advanced life support training or a PEARS class under your belt, you can provide necessary care until help arrives.
