Preventive Health and Safety Training is a classroom-based course designed to meet the 8-hours of California Emergency Medical Authority (EMSA) state licensing requirements for child care.
The training provides instruction that is comprehensive and practical- it prepares administrators and employees of child care centers and family child homes-small or large to keep the children in their care healthy and safe from injury and illness. Participants will learn information about infectious diseases (including immunizations), preventative childhood injuries, caring for children with special needs, identification, reporting of child abuse, childcare nutrition training, and Lead Poisoning Prevention Training.
We are an EMSA approved provider to facilitate this course as a stand alone training for licensed Childcare Providers who have already completed 8 hours of Preventive Health & Safety from January1st, 2016 through June 30, 2020.
Lead poisoning is still a serious threat to the health of young children. This curriculum was created for the early care and education field to inform providers about lead poisoning hazards in the environment and to offer ways to protect children in their care.
As of July 1, 2020, the 8-hour Preventive Health Practices training required for child care licensing must now include a component on Lead Poisoning Prevention.
Child care licensing applicants & current providers making changes to their license who took the Preventive Health Practices course prior to July 1, 2020 must still complete the additional Lead Poisoning Prevention component.
Hopewell CPR is offering the Lead Poisoning Prevention component as a standalone course via Zoom for those who need only that component.
This session is 45-60 minutes long.
