22VAC40-185-240 - Staff Orientation - Section E (First Aid/CPR)

Does this section mean that staff now need to be officially certified within 30 days or just "oriented" with the procedures? If it is certified, this is unrealistic for rural localities who have child care programs. We just recently scheduled a class for staff and had to schedule it 2 months out due to instructor availability. 

This also contradicts the subsidy guidelines of 90 days from date of employment or 90 days from subsidy approval if "certification" is needed and not just "oriented".
