    The American Red Cross is the nation's leader in babysitter training. And with curriculum developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, we can help you learn how to care for the kids in your neighborhood and start your business on the right foot. Best of all, with a wide range of online and in-person babysitting classes in Oregon, it's easy to find a class that suits your schedule and your learning style.

    The American Red Cross offers three types of Oregon babysitting classes. All courses, once successfully completed, will give you access to a printable certificate that you can use to show potential employers and grow your business. Our babysitter training courses take just a few short hours to complete, but can help make all the difference to the families you care for.

    The Oregon Babysitter Training course from the American Red Cross is designed those ages 11 to 15, and is delivered in a traditional classroom setting. With caring, compassionate, knowledgeable instructors who can help you understand the proper techniques for caring for infants and children, you can become a more capable, confident babysitter.

    In our online Advanced Child Care classes you'll refine your skills as a babysitter and receive advanced training in leadership, child behavior and discipline, professionalism, safety, child care and more. These babysitting classes in Oregon are not intended for state-licensed child care providers and do not meet all state requirements for such certification.

    Whether you babysit all the time or provide care infrequently, it's important to keep your wide range of skills fresh and ready for anything. To that end, we've created a variety of refresher materials, including quizzes, games, activities and videos that you can use to remember all the information you learned during your Red Cross babysitter training in Oregon.

    After successfully completing your Red Cross babysitter training in Oregon, you'll receive a digital certificate that you can print up and place in your portfolio or access online at any time. In addition, your certificate will include a unique ID number and a QR code, which allows potential employers to confirm that your certificate is valid.

    The American Red Cross's babysitting classes in Oregon and across the country are created by industry-leading experts who can help prepare you to care for kids of any age. With more than 100 years we've trained families and individuals to respond to emergencies of all sizes, and with the latest information and techniques, we can help you learn the skills needed to become a babysitter that families can count on.

    At the Red Cross we provide those ages 11 and older with a comprehensive education in babysitting and child care best practices.
