The American Red Cross offers online-only babysitter training in Baltimore that can help you gain the skills you need to take care of the kids in your neighborhood. Our online courses allow you to learn at your own pace, and cover topics like activity planning, basic first aid, child behavior, emergency procedures, starting a babysitting business, and more. All tests and activities are performed online. Successful completion of each of our babysitting classes results in a two year certification.

In addition, it and all of your other Red Cross certificates, will be available online. This gives you the power to access and print your certificate anytime, anywhere. And because each certificate includes a unique ID and a QR code, employers can easily use a standard QR reader on their favorite smart device to confirm whether your certificate is valid.
