Teachers & Daycare Workers Need First Aid Training
Sadly summer is over and Teachers and Day Care workers have headed back into the classroom and playroom.
While First Aid /CPR & AED training may be the last item on everyone’s list; keep in mind that there is a requirement under the law to be current in First Aid Training.
We have provided a chart below for easy reference. The corresponding WAC (Washington Administrative Codes) are easily accessed via the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries Website.
