The California Commission on Teacher Credentials (CCTC) requires that all students applying for an initial teaching credential demonstrate that they have “infant, child, and adult CPR certification which meets the criteria of the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross.” The certificate must be a full 2-year certificate; provisional 1-year certificates will not be accepted.

Students who already have CPR certification need to provide a copy of the document, via email or in person, to Credential Services in DBH 303.

Students who do not currently have CPR certification will need to complete it prior to applying for their credential.  We suggest that you contact the American Heart Association or American Red Cross for available sessions.  The links to these organizations are provided below:

  • The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing recently updated their web site. Visit them online at the CTC website. If you have any questions, the commission can be reached by email at credentials@ctc.ca.gov.
