Red Cross Babysitter Training

The Greater Salt Lake Area Chapter of the American Red Cross encourages all babysitters to take the Red Cross Babysitter’s Training course. Youth ages 11-15 are invited to take the class. Red Cross safety experts teach babysitters first aid, choking, and other safety skills. Having a Red Cross Babysitter’s Training certification is also a great way for kids to market themselves for babysitting jobs. The course offers the knowledge, skills, and confidence to care for infants and school-aged children. The cost is $35 and the class runs 6 hours and 45 minutes.

This course includes a participant handbook, CD-ROM, activities, hands-on training and group discussion on the following topics:

  • Responding to emergencies and illnesses with first aid, rescue breathing and other appropriate care
  • Managing young children
  • Making decisions under pressure
  • Recognizing safety and hygiene issues
  • Feeding, changing diapers and other care for infants
  • Communicating with parents to learn household rules
