Rated 4 out of 5 by from Learned A Lot!!! I bought this in June and had learned so much; only suggestion is that they make it with more activities, ie, more exciting/fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very helpful! I think that this was a good course for people to learn how to babysit and for people to understand what to do in case of emergency.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great class but technical issues I loved it. I learned a lot from it and I thought that it was very helpful and educational. The only thing was that I didn’t finish all the lessons in one day. So I was on lesson three and the website made me start back from the beginning and it did that all the way to the sixth lesson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Programs I did the Red Cross Babysitting online class and it was very helpful. I’m just starting out as a babysitter and the class have a lot of helpful information and tips. I’d recommend it to anyone needing help with or starting to babysit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Taught exactly as it said it would. This was a very helpful course in teaching me the basics of babysitting. I learned a lot and I think others will too. My only complaint is that it took double the time it said it would to complete.

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 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good but I learned a lot but my lessons kept glitching out and making me start on the third lesson even though I’ve made it to level 5!! Plz fix this!!

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but frustrating I signed up for a course and it was amazing, but every time I logged out of my course it cancelled my progress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I bought this a few days ago and I love it because I really wanted to be a certified babysitter wth my friends for our business but, it would not allow me to leave then finish the next day. I would have to redo everything until I got to where I needed to be. On lesson 3 I finally got there to finish and it kicked me off so I could not get back on.
Date published: 2018-05-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and Fast I did this so I could become certified for summer. It got slow at times and the videos wouldn't load but overall it was pretty easy. I already knew a lot of the information but it is nice to say I have my certification. I wish this combined CPR with it so I don't have to take an extra course. Overall very fast and pretty simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from helpful,fun and a lifeskill! I did the babysitting course online and paediatric CPR in person.... I think this is the best way to do it. I really enjoyed it.

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 4 out of 5 by from Very helpful! Told me everything I need to know to start babysitting and covered a lot of the possible situations and how to dal with them. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to start babysitting. Could have told how to calm a child better, though.
