Course participants should consult with their respective licensing/accrediting agencies to make sure IACET CEUs meet their continuing education requirements.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very helpful! Told me everything I need to know to start babysitting and covered a lot of the possible situations and how to dal with them. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to start babysitting. Could have told how to calm a child better, though.
