American Red Cross Babysitter Training helps students prepare for the unexpected and respond to emergencies in a calm and confident manner. This course teaches leadership skills, safe play, basic first aid, rescue breathing, and how to clear an obstructed airway. Safety precautions regarding severe weather events are also a part of the curriculum.
Students who are left in charge of their younger siblings after school and on weekends, as well as those left in self-care, find Babysitter’s Training to be a resource to develop the necessary skills needed to increase their self-confidence.
Participants receive a take home handbook with a DVD and a certification card upon completion.
