Who Qualifies as a Responsible Adult?
A Responsible Adult is a person that is 19 years old or more and is able to provide care and mature guidance to children. They will have completed at least 20 hours training in child development, guidance, health and safety or nutrition, and have relevant work experience.
Does a Responsible Adult Need Training?
Yes, people who work with children need current training so that children they take care of can receive quality care and have a healthy start to life.
Does Responsible Adult Training Have to be a College or University course?
No; individuals may be trained in a variety of ways – online, in workshops, conferences, seminars or classes offered through local recreation centres, or through working with an experienced child care provider who can share knowledge and skills.

Do I Need to Renew the Responsible Adult Course Training at Any Point?
