The program follows the American Heart Association standards for rescue skills as well as instruction in first aid techniques from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Students also will learn how to prevent problem behavior, run their own babysitting business and discuss issues of online and cell phone safety, and must pass a practical and written test that indicates their mastery of key concepts and life and safety skills.

All participants will receive a Safe Sitter kit.
