AuPairCare is always looking for ways to improve the au pair experience for both host families and au pairs. Last year, we asked our customers about potential new products or services, and the feedback spoke volumes. We're excited to offer families a new program:Virtual Academy.
By completing their Academy training online, your au pair can arrive directly to your local airport from their home country. Plus, depending on your preferred arrival date, this option may allow your au pair to arrive earlier than anticipated and begin their placement more quickly.
Virtual Academy au pairs receive AuPairCare's quality training program delivered through dynamic online courses and live group webinars taught by Academy trainers the same trainings offered at our in-person Academy. Au pair training will be centered on child safety and development, caregiving and discipline, and an introduction to life in the U.S.A. Au pairs also complete an online course in CPR and First Aid, earning a certificate that is valid for two years. All online Academy courses meet the Department of State's training requirements for au pairs.
AuPairCare offers a number of Virtual Academy arrival dates throughout the calendar year.
