Effective January 2019, Help-A-Heart CPR will begin offering a Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) Certification course. This course will utilize the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) training curriculum and is an comprehensive course that will last approximately 6 hours.The ASHI Child and Babysitting Safety training program provides training in the business of babysitting, proper supervision, basic care-giving skills, and responding properly to ill or injured children and infants. This course will also include a textbook and certification that is valid for 2 years. Although a knowledge of basic CPR and AED training is preferred, it is not necessary to register for this course.
While this class is targeting the 11-15 year old new or existing babysitter, this class is also a wonderful course for those students that may be 9-11 years or even 15-18 years that may or may not have had extensive exposure to child and infant care. Lastly, this course has also been approved by the American Pediatric Association and would be a wonderful skill and certification to add to the training knowledge of the young babysitter.
Giver us a call at 210-380-5344 to inquire about our next CABS certification training and CPR and First Aid training class.
