Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good content The content of the course is very good. The only down side was that the program would freeze quite often.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Babysitting Basics - full of glitches. The website had so many problems and glitches that my daughter had to repeat parts of the lessons multiple times in order to reach the end and be allowed to take the test. We called Red Cross for help numerous times, but they could not help and the people we spoke with agreed that the site was problematic! We were both in tears trying to get the certification finished. She finally got certified after months of trying, but I will NEVER sign up for a Red Cross online course again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from hey I really don't recommend this I bought it and it charged me twice so instead of $40 it $80 and I can't get a refund. Also everything I learned I already knew. I would not do this class. It is not worth it but that is just my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good class, awful platform I bought this for my daughter to do. And while the class was great, their online platform was awful! We spent more time having to go back through the whole class, than the class was long. I even called and they couldn’t figure out what was wrong. I likely won’t buy the next class as it took well over 12 hours to do because of the technical issues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not save progress I bought this to try and earn a babysitting certificate, but when I had already put in two hours of work, it exited out of the tab. I tried to get back to it and it didn't save any of my progress! I had to start back at the very beginning of the class.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok I bought this a week ago and it was great except when it would log me out every 45min and I would have to start over.
