CCRC’s Training Academy offers high quality trainings to meet the needs of early education professionals and others who work with young children and families.

CPR/Health & Safety

It's one of those things you hope you never need, but if you do, you're glad you know it. When a child gets injured or becomes sick, knowing First Aid and CPR can save that child's life.

We offer hands-on training in Adult-Child-Infant CPR and Pediatric First Aid. All of our classes are EMSA approved, and they meet Child Care Licensing (CCL) regulations so taking these classes will help with your licensing requirements.  Our instructors are early childhood experts and know what licensed child care professionals need to know. Once you're finished, you'll receive your certification through the American Red Cross.
