I've gotten multiple certs (including Red Cross) but this one was definitely my favorite! The training is engaging and I actually learned a lot from it, unlike some of the other ones where they expect you to just read a book. The certification document and wallet card I received are very professional and have definitely helped me stand out to clients.

I enrolled my daughter because she has gotten old enough to start helping take care of our youngest son when we're not home. It has made me as well as her feel more confident in her ability and was definitely time well spent.

Common Questions

A babysitting certification is a specialized training program that teaches individuals how to care for children of various ages, including infants and toddlers. It covers topics such as child safety, first aid and CPR, age-appropriate activities, and communication with parents. A babysitting certification is important because it provides parents and families with reassurance that their children are in good hands while they are away, and it gives babysitters the confidence and skills they need to provide quality care.

Eligibility requirements vary by certification program, but our program recommends participants be at least 11 years old.

Most students complete the course in about 1-2 hours.

Online course materials are accessible through your user account that is generated after payment. If technical difficulties arise, participants can contact customer support via phone, text or email.

Babysitting certification can be a valuable asset for individuals seeking employment in the childcare industry. Certified babysitters may be able to use their certification to find work through online job boards, word of mouth referrals, or babysitting agencies.
