Getting CPR certified is one of the general requirements that most Seattle nanny placement agencies require for their nanny candidates. These classes are available through several sources and at varying price levels.
For nannies, it is important to look for a class that is specifically designed for children. These are usually labeled under “Child Care” in the course offerings or with names like “Child and Infant CPR, AED and First Aid”. Just be sure to research and then select the proper course being offered by the chosen provider.
