Q:

How do I become a licensed babysitter?

A:

Neither the federal government nor states grant licenses for babysitters. However, all 50 states license childcare providers according to federal guidelines. While certification requirements vary by state, certified childcare workers must typically pass a background check, hold certifications in first aid, CPR and the Heimlich maneuver and have certain immunizations. States generally explicitly exempt babysitters from licensing laws, allowing people to care for the children of friends and relatives.
