ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Do you really know who's taking care of your kids? You may get a little peace of mind thanks to a new course at Darton College.

Through the American Red Cross, the school is offering a babysitter training certification course. In a variety of lessons, 11 to 15-year-olds learn how to take care of children responsibly and safely.

Monday afternoon several young ladies learned how to take care of burns and bruises.

"This is a great opportunity to actually learn the correct skills that you need to care for your own siblings or neighbors. It's an opportunity for young women or men to get a little extra money, maybe start a business and learn leadership skills in it," said Beth Nielsen-Smith with Darton College.

Wednesday the babysitters will learn CPR and first aid. Combined, both classes cost $100. For information on how to register, call 229-317-6730.
