Safe Sitter® Essentials with CPR Course

As part of our commitment to child safety, CHI St. Joseph Health has been a certified Safe Sitter® teaching site for over 25 years. Safe Sitter® prepares students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they're home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

Students learn life-saving skills such as how to rescue someone who's choking, and helpful information like what to do if there is severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use CPR manikins to practice CPR and choking rescue!


The one-day Safe Sitter® Essentials with CPR course is available to students in grades 6-8. Pre-registration is required as the class size is limited. Registration cost is $50, which includes the cost of the official Safe Sitter® student handbook and completion card. Student scholarships are available to students whose families cannot afford the normal fee.

Class space is limited, so registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, send this completed registration form by fax to 979-774-0913 or email to, and make your payment. Payments can be made by credit card over the phone by calling the Healthy Communities office at 979-731-1231 or in-person by appointment. We accept all major credit cards.


Safe Sitter classes are offered each summer; June - August. Please check back for 2018 class dates.
