Free NYS OCFS Pediatric First Aid & CPR Training

    National Safety Council As of December 1, 2014, QS2 Training and Consulting will offer Pediatric First Aid and CPR training free of charge to all NYS licensed providers in all modalities. This has been made possible through a partnership with the National Safety Council, which has recently been awarded the Pediatric First Aid and CPR NYS OCFS grant.

The National Safety Council is the current OCFS approved training vendor for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and First Aid Training. NSC has experienced an unusually large number of requests for CPR/FA training. OCFS is committed to provide this training throughout the term of the contract. However, with the increased attendance, it is now necessary to stagger the number of trainees who can take the courses each month offered by the NSC. Please note that the training will continue to be provided on a first come, first served basis but the total per month will be capped based on available resources.

We look forward to working with you and thank the Early Childhood Community for your continuous support! Your support affords us these opportunities to share our knowledge and experience.

Dear National Safety Council Pediatric First Aid, CPR and AED Online Student:

The National Safety Council along with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services recommend skills testing be completed within 30 days following successful completion of the online portion of the class.

Better retention of the knowledge you learned during the on-line portion of your class will result in you being able to apply the knowledge you acquired and prepares you to confidently respond in an emergency situation.

If 30 days has passed since you completed the online portion of this class, it will be necessary for you to re-take the online portion of the course. Seating for the class is limited, and new ID's will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you have completed or re-taken the online portion of the class, it is your responsibility to immediately sign up for the skills testing component with one of our providers. Click here for a listing by county of whom to contact to schedule your skills testing. You will be issued a completion certificate for the class upon successfully completing the skills testing session.

Thank you for your cooperation.
