    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Program kept crashing, content was as expected My daughter needed to take this online course in order to do a Student Program at Strong Children's Hospital. It claimed that the 4 hour online course can be stopped and restarted at any time so you do not have to complete it all in one sitting. NOT TRUE!! It does not save your work completed and the program crashed several times making her start all over again from the beginning. So the 4 hour course took more like 15 hours to complete and she was very frustrated. But the content is sufficent and very basic, she had no problem passing the final exam.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good class for teens The course had a great content and was presented at good pace. Unfortunately the website was not user friendly. My son had to re-take the course three times, because the site kept crashing without saving his progress (first, after the third module and then on the last, 6th module). Despite the promise that you can take the course at your own pace, plan to do it all in one sitting, so you don’t loose the progress made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Informative classes I took this course to become certified so that people would hire me, and I'm so happy that I did! The classes covered everything I needed to know about, from playing with kids to dealing with emergencies. They also included videos of how to properly settle disputes, hold and feed children, and diaper a child. I love this class and would absolutely recommend it to anyone.
