The Red Cross offers Babysitting Certification online, but we feel that a practical application and experience using the information presented in the online course is important for many students. This hybrid option allows for all the learning required for certification, plus practice with these new skills. It only requires 3 hours of classroom time for busy families. To participate in this course, please register for the practical portion at www.priorlakesavagece.com (space is limited). Approximately 2 weeks prior to the practical course, this section will be confirmed or cancelled based on enrollment. Students in confirmed classes will be emailed the link to the Red Cross website, where the online course should be completed. No refunds will be issued after this time. This online portion must be complete prior to the classroom portion. Upon completion of the online program, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Please bring that Certificate of Completion to the practical application class. This session will cover baby care, such as bottle feeding, spoon feeding, and diapering. Practice exercises related to child/infant conscious choking, rescue breathing, checking for consciousness, and First Aid Skills to use in emergency situations will also take place. The $35 fee is for the classroom portion only. There is a $25 fee to complete the Red Cross online program.
