In Orientation, au pairs receive basic Red Cross first aid and CPR training. To build on those skills and ensure that our au pairs are prepared for a variety of possible emergencies, we encourage each au pair to take an 8 hour Red Cross CPR & First Aid Course.
Au Pair in America will pay for the cost of a Red Cross CPR/First Aid Class, providing you have at least three months left on your visa or extension. You must take one of several approved child care/child safety related classes, such as Infant/Child CPR & First Aid or Community CPR & First Aid.
Why not take advantage of this great benefit? Information is available here on the APIA website.
I believe Au Pair in America is the only au pair agency who offers this benefit.
