The course, designed for youth ages 11 to 15, will run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on President’s Day at the  Red Cross location in Westfield.

The course also teaches how to identify safety hazards and prevent injuries, care for common injuries such as burns, cuts and bee stings and how to find and interview for babysitting jobs.

As a part of the $85 course fee, participants receive the Babysitter’s Training Handbook containing information to use in class and on the job; an Emergency Reference Guide providing step-by-step instructions to handle common emergencies; a CD-ROM including tools such as a printable activity booklet with games, songs and recipes, a resume template and more.

Space is limited so please register early to reserve a seat. Attendees should pack a lunch for the all-day class.
