Rated 5 out of 5 by from American red cross review I'm so glad I did the course I want to be able to help kids and watch them with a certification. This course taught me how to handle different questionable situations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor functionality, but good content My daughter and friend completed this course together. Getting initial access to the online course was extremely difficult. We had to change passwords for some unknown reason, then the passwords were not accepted on the site. Every time they took a break, they lost some of the progress they had made and had to re-take the lost modules. Very poor functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results! Although the lessons were long they were SO helpful and I put every single one to use. A few days later I had a babysitting job and I did so well a mom gave me ten bucks. The thing is...I wasn't babysitting her child.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Information, Bad presentation All the information in the class is very useful and important but the way it is presented is mindnumbingly boring.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good but horrible!!! So I took the babysitting class and during it I was logged out of the course and it deleted all of my work.... and I was about 2 min close to finish it!!! So I had to redo it all over again and it took another 3 hours or so!!! So by then I was mad! So when I finally finished it was ok, the teaching was great but it was a lot of common sense!

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.
