Washington State Department of Children, Youth, and Families has partnered with Keep the Beat CPR and First Aid Training to offer free CPR/First Aid/BBP training’s statewide. These services are available to ALL families pursuing foster care licensing and current caregivers of foster children, including kinship care providers, relative providers, and DCYF adoptive and guardianship families.
*Students must be 16 years and older to attend the class and receive certification.
*If you require a reasonable accommodation, please provide Keep the Beat with at least 2 weeks notice. Keep the Beat/DCYF will make every effort to provide the service to assist you. This includes interpreters that may be needed.
*In consultation with the Licensing Division the following changes will be effective immediately regarding CPR & First Aid Renewals: Caregivers must complete both CPR and First Aid Classes in their entirety at each renewal. First Aid and CPR re-certifications do NOT apply to the required training hours requirement. We appreciate the dedication and commitment of our caregivers in keeping our children safe.
