    Water Safety Instructor Candidate Kit, Rev. 08/16 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential tools for WSIs So nice to have the hard copy versions of the textbooks when training WSI candidates so that they can become completely familiar to what they'll need as future instructors. While I appreciate the option of having these resources available in free digital format on the Candidates page of Instructor's Corner, I strongly feel that there is a value in issuing the required textbooks in hard copy format. I miss the Longfellow Whales Tales stickers! And posters! Those were nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unbound The content is great as always, but the WSI Manual is presented as a book on the sales page when it's actually 3-hole punched, unbound pages that require a binder.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Required Materials Fine as far as providing information for the class, I don't know if I'd read just for fun. As for the question "Would you recommend this product to a friend?" only if they were taking the WSI course

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boring Covers They are what's required for the class, not edge of your seat reading. Instructor Candidates have a hard time understanding some of the content.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought it because it said rev. 8/16 First I have to say that this is the best instructor training materials out there. The Red Cross always gets it right with materials. I bought this because it said it was revised 8/16, but it is the same books I already had- copyright 2014. I think the instructor candidate kit should come with an example of the Red Cross booklet, a completion card and the water safety small booklet. As an IT, I miss these things!
