Safe Sitter: Babysitting Training Course – July 21, 2014


Is your child ready to begin babysitting? We have a great training course to get them prepared for their babysitting journey.

Appalachian Regional Healthcare System is offering a course for young teens age 11 and up. The up-to-date curriculum provides hands-on practice in lifesaving techniques designed to prepare babysitters to act in an emergency. Babysitters also receive instruction on how a child’s age affects how to care for them, how to prevent problem behavior, and how to run their own babysitting business. They also learn basic first aid as well a how to perform infant and child choking rescue and CPR.

*please note- the students receive training in CPR and basic first aid but are not certified.

To graduate from the Safe Sitter course and receive a completion card, students must pass a rigorous practical and written test that indicates their mastery of key concepts and life and safety skills.
