Are Gold Standard Nannies CPR and FIrst Aid Trained?

Nannies usually fall into three categories:

  1. Those who are CPR and First Aid trained
  2. Those who are CPR and First Aid trained, but with lapsed certificates.
  3. Those who are not CPR or First Aid trained, but are willing to become certified if that’s a requirement for the job.

Our agency works with a mix of these types of candidates. We do not work with applicants who don’t have First Aid or CPR and don’t show a willingness to obtain these certificates.

We also often recruit nannies who have nursing degrees or infant/child CPR and first aid certifications.

Additionally, we ask our applicants to provide evidence of their certificates. We copy and store these documents in the candidate’s profile.
