    If, after completing one of our New Hampshire babysitting certification courses, your child decided to further his or her education by taking a First Aid/CPR/AED class, maintaining those skills is critical.

    Babysitting requires the skills of someone who's responsible, mindful, and understands how to take care of children. And unless you know your babysitter very well, odds are good that gauging these traits won't be easy from a simple interview or two. That's why it's important to look for someone who has gone through formal babysitting training in New Hampshire. This way, you can review the course provider's syllabus, talk to your prospective babysitter about any safety, emergency, or first aid/CPR/AED skills, and understand their level of commitment. Of course, holding a babysitting certification isn't a guarantee that a candidate is the right fit for the job, but it does show that the he or she takes the job seriously.

But rather than keeping a copy of your certificate to show to prospective employers, you can simply give them a link or QR code that they can use to access your credentials. It's fast, simple, and paperless. Find the class that's right for you, and start earning the certifications you need.
