The purpose of the American Red Cross Babysitters training course is to provide individuals with the information and skills necessary to provide safe and responsible care for children. Participants will receive the knowledge, skills and confidence to care for infants and school-age children. Babysitter training will show you how to respond to emergencies and illnesses with first aid, rescue breathing and other appropriate care, make decisions under pressure, communicate with parents to learn household rules, recognize safety and hygiene issues, manage young children, and feed, diaper and care for infants. Bring a sack lunch, a snack and a doll you can diaper. Certifications are issued through the American Red Cross and will be mailed to your home address. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.
