Be Independent: Cash in on Discounted Babysitting Courses
The American Red Cross is offering a 20 percent discount on babysitting courses through the end of July. With a course under their belts, teens and young adults can inch closer to financial independence from mom and dad.
The Babysitter’s Basics online course, Babysitter’s Training classroom course and the classroom course with Pediatric First Aid/CPR are eligible for the discount using coupon code INDY200913 (case sensitive) when registering online atredcross.org/takeaclass or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS. All registrations made through July 31 are eligible for the discount regardless of when the course takes place.
The courses provide students aged 11 years or older with a range of training and skills so they can jumpstart their babysitting career and show potential employers they know their stuff. In each course, participants will learn to care for infants and children up to 10 years old, to keep the children and themselves safe, and to handle a variety of emergencies. Potential sitters also learn how to manage a babysitting business.
