Do you love the company of children? Play with them and enjoy exciting activities together? So this career that Emagister offers you could be a call for you instead of a job. The opportunities are excellent. In fact, in the last five years, employment has increased at an astonishing rate and it is expected to continue growing. The ICI professional babysitter course offers all the information and training you need to work on what you like the most.

Apart from local employment, qualified nannies are also well received in countries such as the USA. UU., United Kingdom and France, so if you are looking for international job opportunities, this is a good opportunity to start. As a nanny, you must have a genuine love for children, possess good communication and organizational skills, you can work without the need for supervision with the patience and maturity required for that profession.

This course is done remotely (also known as correspondence learning). The distance learning will facilitate you to accommodate the study with work, family and other commitments. It is also highly beneficial if you simply want to accelerate your studies (and your career) and not be locked into a calendar.

The content of our course and the learning experience ensure that your learning is important and interesting. You can study, ask for assistance and help and do the assessments wherever and whenever you want. The course is conducted at your own pace on your own terms to suit your lifestyle.

Do not miss this great opportunity and request more details in Emagister.

What I would highlight: I embarked on this journey a little over 24 weeks ago. The Professional Nanny has surpassed all my expectations. As I progressed through every module my confidence grew and I learnt skills which have produced some amazing results. I never knew I would enjoy a course like this one so much. My experience with International Career Institute has been very positive so far. I have been extremely happy with both the service and professionalism of the college. Thanks!
