EMSA Stand-Alone 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.
