Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT WASTE YOUR KIDS TIME! My son spent hours on this online course only for it to lose his progress and take him back through most of the modules. It was extremely frustrating as he worked hard and was excited to be close to finishing. I spend almost an hour on the phone taking to 6 different people with "customer service" who could not do anything to help me without having a screen shot of his progress. Spend the extra money and time to go to the physical class and do not waste your time with this faulty online course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great course!! My 11 year old son took this course this weekend and it was wonderful. I would recommend blocking out a time and having them sit down and do it all in one shot. You are able to pause the videos so your child can take potty and snacks breaks. It was very easy to navigate it and he completed it wilt absolutely no help or guidance needed. We liked that there was a certificate to print out and he was so proud of himself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for being online! I bought this course to make sure that I could provide the best care for the children I babysit and that’s exactly what I got with bonuses like business advice and more.
