Do all of these initial and annual trainings have to be completed every year?

Once you and any applicable staff have completed the initial required trainings, you do not have to take them again unless the agency identifies a need. The only exception is Pediatric First Aid/CPR training: You must maintain or keep current Pediatric First Aid/CPR training. Annual trainings will be required each fiscal year. Providers will receive notification from DSS annually announcing the annual training requirement and how they can complete the specific training topic(s).
