Designed primarily for youth ages 11 and older, this online course will prepare students to be better babysitters. Topics include how to provide care for infants and children; how to stay safe; what to do in an emergency; how to choose age-appropriate activities; and how to recognize and handle a variety of behaviors. Students will also learn the basics of starting a babysitting business.
The course consists of six interactive modules featuring video, activities, games and tools babysitters can use to build their knowledge and skills and manage their babysitting business. This course, which includes a final exam at the end, takes about 4 hours to complete.
Students who successfully complete the course will receive a printable certificate.
A part of our mission is to train people how to respond to and prepare for emergencies. Designed by experts, our online-only classes provide an interactive and engaging method to learning essential safety and preparedness information and skills. When you choose an online-only class, you will not have the opportunity to demonstrate your skill proficiency to a certified instructor. Therefore, online-only training may not meet the requirements for workplace safety.
