Comprehensive Babysitting w/CPR certification class @ HQ 8-30-2022 at 6:30p-8:30p
August 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$175.00
While every family and situation is unique, there are some universal life-saving skills and techniques that every babysitter should know how to do. Nested offers this Comprehensive Babysitting class with American Red Cross Pediatric & Adult CPR/Choking Prevention/First Aid/AED certification in a blended learning class format to help you provide the care that families need. It consists of a self-paced, interactive online session to be taken in the convenience of your home, followed by an in-person, hands-on skills training and discussion session with one of Nested’s certified American Red Cross instructors.
This course is ideal for childcare professionals (e.g., nannies, au pairs, and babysitters) as well as parents, grandparents, and siblings to help prepare you to recognize and respond to a variety of breathing and cardiac emergencies involving children and babies.
NOTE: ALL breathing portions of CPR practice are conducted outside due to ongoing health & safety precautions — depending upon class size and weather permitting
4-HOUR TIME COMMITMENT: American Red Cross online learning portion is 1-2 hours (done at your own pace at home), followed by a 2-hour in-person class for review and hands-on practice. NOTE: The online portion must be completed PRIOR to being eligible to attend the hands-on, in-person portion of the class.
- The online session must be successfully completed at least 2-3 days PRIOR to attend the in-person class. Please allow 2 hours for the online portion. NOTE: you’ll receive access to online portion approximately 10 days in advance of the in-person class.
- During the 2-hour in-person portion of the course, the instructor will show how to resuscitate using CPR and an automated external defibrillator (AED) on specialized, non-responsive infant and adult CPR dolls as well as choking prevention strategies. Attendees will be able to practice techniques on the dolls and must demonstrate each technique successful in order to obtain certification.
In order to obtain a course completion certification card, students must successfully complete the course, which includes both the online portion as well as the in-person first aid skills demonstration, a CPR and AED skills test. Upon completion, students receive an American Red Cross CPR Certification, which is valid for 2 years. This course satisfies OSHA-mandated job requirements, workplace or other regulatory requirements.
