A few times during the year, depending on the level of demand and the needs of families, the Military Family Resource Centre offers training for kids ranging from 10 to 17 years old. Some of the courses offered are Home Alone, the Babysitting Course and CPR. The courses are held at the Saint-Jean and Saint-Hubert service points in either English, French or both languages simultaneously.

Course Descriptions



Babysitting Course
The MFRC offers this course to youth who want to be trained in babysitting.

Taking this course will give your child a better idea of what to expect as a babysitter and various tools for responding to potential situations. There is a course fee of $20 to cover the cost of the manual.
