The Water Safety for Parents and Caregivers Online Course focuses on developing an awareness of the risks of drowning and how to minimize those risks, especially for young children. This online course teaches parents and caregivers about the concepts of the circle of drowning prevention, water competency, and the chain of drowning survival. It also provides guidance for applying water safety to common environments and situations where children are most at risk for drowning.
This is a free online course offered by the American Red Cross. You will need to register for the course through the American Red Cross website. At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate that does not expire.
