BOSTON (AP) — American Red Cross chapters across Massachusetts will offer a one-day babysitter training course on Presidents Day.
The Feb. 18 class will cover safety training, including how to deal with emergencies when supervising children.
It’s aimed at teenagers who have the day off from school, and costs $85.
The course is meant to build participants’ confidence when it comes to holding, feeding and caring for infants and toddlers.
The training also will cover drafting resumes and interviewing for potential babysitting jobs.
