Babysitting Training Course

American Red Cross babysitting training course can help you gain the skills you need to take care of the kids in your neighborhood when their parents can’t be with them. Created for young babysitters, our best-in-class training gives you the opportunity to sharpen your skills and become a safe, reliable babysitter. During your training, you can also choose to earn your First Aid and CPR/AED certifications (good for two years), which can help you learn how to provide care during an emergency. Recommended for those ages 11 to 15, this course is designed to help participants develop leadership skills, build their clientele, help keep themselves and others safe, help children learn how to behave, and learn basic child care and basic first aid. Participants must attend both days to gain certification.
