Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Learn! I bought this a month ago and I'm so happy to take this course! For someone who can't drive and is in a need of a job, it's an amazing opportunity to take the class online. I am a college student looking to make money, so this course will prepare me (and anyone) for babysitting. I took a baby sitting course when I was in middle school and took this class to refresh my memory. Another reason why someone should take this class is because of how quick it is to learn the material. It's very simple and really efficient. The class is broken down into sections and teaches you babysitting through videos, images, quizzes, and flashcards as its very interactive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Children Learning to Babysit The Babysitting package was perfect for what it was. The package explained how to get a interview, how to get a resumé, etc. It also explained how to dress so your comfortable, and how to take care of the child of he/she has a nose bleed or injury such as a scrape,etc. The package comes with free printout, the printout are fact sheets on how to hold a baby, bottle and spoon feed infants and toddlers, changing a diaper, how to perpare a baby bottle,etc. I thought this Babysitting course was the perfect thing for teens and young adults. The course was filled with information which you don't have to read because the course is all videos and little learning games, which makes learning easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good option for online class My daughter and I thought this was a good option for an online class since she was able to do this class at her own pace based on time available, rather than attending a 4 hr long class at a local hospital. Information provided was pretty basic but good review, regardless. Only thing that wasn't great about this online class were that the videos froze a lot while my daughter was watching them. We have pretty fast internet at home so I don't know if it was just our connection or an issue with the site but since the class consisted of a lot of videos, this issue became pretty annoying and disruptive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing course! i bought this class about a month ago and it is totally worth the money! it taught me so many things that include what to do in an emergency, problem solving, making sure that you’re safe, etc. There are 6 courses and the final exam. Each course is about 20-30 minutes. After each course there is a test to see what u remember about that course. Watching the videos and going to the MoreInfo section is extremely helpful in each course. To become a certified RedCross babysitter, you have to score an 80% or higher on the final exam. For a while i’ve wanted to try babysitting and once i found this course, I couldn’t wait to try it! I definitely recommend this course to someone is looking to have more knowledge when it comes to babysitting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Challenging Internet Access! I purchased this course, basic babysitting, for my granddaughter to take. The course itself was fine, but access was a real challenge. The confirming e-mail had a link to the training, which worked the first time I used it to finish registering. The next time it directed me to a site that my virus program warned was a scam and that asked for "unusual" informaton. I had to call in for help, and they gave me an entirely different web site to use for the class. They really need to fix this issue as it was very frustrating working through the challenges to get to the course so she could actually complete it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great...except for the numerous technical problems Our family really enjoyed the videos and learned a ton about babysitting. It was truly helpful. The problem was this: repeatedly, we would be midway through a session and we would be disconnected and suddenly had to start over from the beginning, requiring us to press advance over and over again and reanswer numerous quizzes just to get back to where we left off. This happened over and over. In the last session, we have never been able to get past a certain point despite trying roughly a dozen times to advance to the next slide/video. It was frustrating that we paid for the course, but were unable to finish it. Please know the program is really great, but hopefully the technical details will get worked out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Personal Thought of This Course It was a great online course that helped build up babysitting skills. However, when the course had completed, I could not go back and review the course

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features, hard to get to. I did this course a few days ago and I found it very helpful for my starting career of babysitting, however the course was very difficult to find and the directions to start were unclear. The course also signed me out and sent me my certificate even though I hadn't even finished yet. Also once you finish the course, you can't go back to the multiple resources that the course offers (things that tell you how to deal with difficult situations.)
