STEP 1. Fill In Registration Form

Fill in the form at the bottom of the page.  Completing the form on line, assures correct spelling of name and address necessary for the Red Cross to send out the certification cards. Any errors will lead to delay in receiving your certification card from the Red Cross. You will receive an automated reply from the web site when your form is successfully received. If you do not receive this reply, resend.

Kindly fill in this registration form Only if you follow directly with the Payment Step 2 as soon as possible. Forms not accompanied with Step 2 will be deleted to give place to someone who wants to take the course.

Waiting List. Courses are open unless there is a note beside the course date in the chart above that we are taking a waiting list.  If you would like to attend at that time, please fill in the form and complete the Payment Step. There are often cancellations one or two days before the course. We will contact you on a first come, first served basis if a space opens up. 

Step 2. Arrange Payment

Some form of payment is required to save your place in the course.

TO PAY for Course #1 FAF or Course #2 ECCFA, either......

a) Cheque/ Money Order. 

Mail (generally arrives in two - three business days)  a post-dated cheque or money order for the start date of your course.  If paying by cheque, please notify us that you are sending in the cheque with a separate email info@babysecure.ca or call 514 485 BEBE (2323), directly after you fill in the registration form. The cheque is not deposited until after the course. (There is a $20.00 service charge for NSF cheques as well as any other service fees from the bank)

or

b) hold your place with Credit Card until paying at Course.

Call 514 485 BEBE (2323) to leave a credit card number (for your security do not email this number) to reserve your place until the day of  the course. Then you would need to pay by cash, cheque or money order. We do not accept payment for the Course by credit card to keep course costs down. The credit card number is used to save your place and only will be processed for the Cancellation Fee (see below) if you do not give the two day notice that you will not be attending.  

or 

c) Bank Transfer to info@babysecure.ca. Send security password in separate email. Transfer is not deposited until after the course is completed.

 

Please send cheque or money order to:
BabySecure Inc.
Station St. Charles
P.O. Box 202

Step 3 Confirmation 

When Post Dated Cheques are received, an email (please enable emails from Babysecure and/or monitor your junk mail in your computer) will be sent to confirm receipt. Since rooms where the course is held at the hospital may change, additional information including directions to St. Mary's Hospital and room location is emailed out the week before the course.

Additional Information

Receipts. Receipts for the course are emailed after the course. For those whom a First Aid Course can be related to your work, the receipts can be used for a credit on income taxes.

Cancellation If, for any reason after registering, you are not able to attend, please notify us immediately. Notice must be given 48 hourrs before the day of the course to receive full credit for next course or a refund (chq torn up). There is a cancellation fee for shorter than this notice. Because numbers in courses are small, there is no refund if you attend only part of a course. There is a limited opportunity to make up the remaining part of the course at another time depending on numbers of participants and room size. Courses may be cancelled due to insufficient registration.

Accreditation All participants in courses receive accrediation from the Red Cross. Cards are mailed from the Red Cross, generally within a week or two after the course. Usually your receipt, which is emailed to you after the course, is accepted by employers as evidence that you took the course. The receipt is sent by email within a few days after the end of the course. If your employers asks for some other verification that you have taken the course, have them call Babysecure. Since Red Cross courses have limited numbers, if you need to renew your creditation for employment, it is always better to plan to make arrangements to take the renewal course a few months before your current card expires.

Keeping in touch In order to avoid playing telephone tag with numbers of people, the majority of communication between participants in courses and Babysecure will be done by email. Please check your emails regularly after signing up for a course.

Private Course If you have a group of 6 people and would like to organize one of the above courses, 

call (514) 485-BÉBÉ (2323).
