Babysitting Basics - Online Course is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 197.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great but great program. Easy to do at home and very helpful. But it kept crashing. I ended up doing the program 3 times before I got the certificate. Not sure if this was just my computer but I definitely recommend doing it on chrome or anything other than safari.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Material-Frustrating Website Good course, but website is not user friendly if you log out and try to return to the course. It would not keep my daughter's place if she got up for a break and she would have to restart each time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good content I thought the content was very good and my daughters enjoyed the videos. My only complaint was it didn’t save our progress so we had to go back through it again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it's topic choice of issues arising. Did it in 24 hours? It was a bit "challenging" because the questions are general, so the answers were numerous and beyond(leaving it blank, partial answered). Write with experience from your parent s/aunt s & uncle s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comprehensive My mom bought this for me to earn a badge. I read the reviews and thought that this would be incredibly boring, but it was very fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a great class! This class taught me a lot about how to babysit kids correctly and I loved how you can watch a video of a babysitter doing the skill that you are learning. It really helped me because I learn better that way.
