Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Class The course was very informative. I could take a break at my own leisure or review materials as needed. There were a lot of wonderful resources to print out too. It was an awesome class.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and Informative but too long. I learned better techniques for babysitting, from playing with the children and developmental stages, to emergency preparedness and conflict resolution. I did not like that I had to complete the course in one sitting. After closing the site after completing half the course, it did not save my progress. I had to start again. I think it took about 6+ hours to complete.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from helped a little Helped me with a little things I had mostly learned the stuff they taught me. The first lessons are how to start a business which I already knew how to do. However it would be great for someone who don’t know what to do at all. I had to call Red Cross 3-4 times because I would be doing my lesson and it would log me out. I haven’t finished the lesson and it said that I got my certificate. It also did not let me take the final exam. But again I would recommend it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good program, hard to save progress I bought the online babysitters class, and while the course itself was informative, it was nearly impossible to save my progress, and even when I used the instructions provided, it wouldn't always work. Overall If it was easier to log in, I would've given this program 5/5 stars.

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 5 out of 5 by from User friendly! Excellent Babysitting resource. The real life videos were a great help and Sophia's extras had good information. The format was very user friendly and easy to follow. I learned a lot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay I think this class is good for super beginners, but it was just saying things I already knew, like to not open the door for strangers and don’t be on your phone. Te website is also super confusing. Couldn’t figure it out.
