Cultural Care Au Pairs are Certified by the American Heart Association on the Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED and First Aid Certification

All Cultural Care au pairs initially fly into New York to participate in a mandatory 4-day training course at the Cultural Care Au Pair training school, located on the campus of EF International Language Center New York in Tarrytown, New York. Our Au Pair Training School provides an ideal opportunity for au pairs to acclimate to American culture, learn how to create a safe and nurturing environment for children and review information critical to the success of their stay in the U.S.

In our latest ‘How It Works’ segment Jane Monzures is learning about infant CPR. She’ll find out when it’s appropriate as well as walk through the infant CPR steps and learn how it’s different from adult CPR.


The Au Pair Training School workbook covers topics such as health and safety in the home, food and nutrition, child-rearing in the U.S. and building self-esteem in children, and developmentally appropriate activities. Teachers also facilitate role-playing and in-depth discussions. With a modern approach to scenario-based learning, au pairs learn about topics such as effective communication, challenging situations with children, the dynamic subject of living and working with a host family, and more.

A personal safety workshop led by a New York City police officer will provide au pairs with practical knowledge about their new life in the U.S.

Adult and Pediatric CPR, First Aid, and safe driver training

Cultural Care au pairs will be instructed by the American Heart Association on the adult and pediatric CPR/AED and First Aid certification program at the Au Pair Training Schools.

Fantastic resources to print and put into your au pairs household handbook or on your refrigerator as a quick reference.

Upon successful completion, au pairs receive a 2-year certification and access to free online skill refreshers and free digital course materials.

CPR basics are great to know in general, but they’re especially important to know if you’re a parent. That’s why for this episode of FAM For All Moms we brought in Focus Health co-founder and Head CPR instructor Bryan Wiedenheft to show Susan Yara and Sharzad Kiadeh a few CPR basics.
