American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Updates Pediatric First Aid & Pediatric CPR Offering

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) offers an onsite and hybrid course, Pediatric First Aid for Caregivers and Teachers (PedFACTs), which includes Pediatric First Aid/CPR, emergency medical services (EMS) and automated external defibrillator (AED). The onsite course requires an online pretest, 4-hour classroom, and a final examination. The hybrid course requires an online pretest, self-directed online modules (about 2 hours), online final examination, and attending a 2-hour hands-on skills practice with instructor interaction[1].

The PedFACTS course is being discontinued as of March 31, 2022. The PedFACTS certification is valid for 2 years from the date of the PedFACTS course completion, as long as the PedFACTS course occurs on or before March 31, 2022. If certification is needed after March 31, 2022, it is recommended to seek an alternative approved course in the PD Registry.
