Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Course The actual course is fine but the nightmare of the website leading to the start of the course is very trying. It took me 1 hour to actually get to the class, and that included 3 phone calls to the help line. The same thing happened 2 yrs. ago when I took the class the last time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good class...still need to work on technology The class is good and it is important to take. But almost everytime I take a class there is some sort of technology issue. Thankfully I took a screen shot that I completed the course because after over 3 hours it said that I never started the course! Tech support was great in getting me credit,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wide range of topics Pros: The class covered just about all topics that swim coaches should be aware of. The material was up to date and was formatted well for tablet use. Cons: The class included a few too many scenario sections. It’s good to allow feedback for real life scenarios, but one for each topic seemed laborious. It would be nice to combine a several topics into fewer feedback scenarios. Also, I had to take the test numerous times due to the test freezing (failure to load next page). This might have been due to tablet (iPad) compatibility, but it definitely could have been smoother.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Signing on is a nightmare Every two years I have to take your online courses for USA Swimming, and the anticipation of getting on and then navigating the system is always a nightmare. You need better program writers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Important stuff! Being an ARC lifeguard instructor it is easy to see that in order to be a swim coach some of the info learned in STFSC is not covered in the lifeguarding class.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to access After calling your office, it took 40 min. to log on. We have been frustrated as a swim club. One of our coaches had to take the course twice, pay twice also because the results didn't come the first time. It took several days for me to get my results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Website has glitches Only certain routes to sign in work. I click the sign in button on the top of the page, but it says my information is wrong even though I know it is right. So I "reset" my password. The link to sign in from the email worked! But I had to go through this password "reset" every time I had to re-login. The site also didn't save my work a few times. And it logged me out due to inactivity although I was currently watching a video or taking a quiz. ARC website needs help!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good class, but website has issues The class content was good, however the program did not track my progress or test results so I had to retake the class and test again. The second time I took a screenshot of my test results as recommended after contacting customer support after the first time when it didn’t work. I’m glad I did, because it didn’t track my progress or test results the second time either. Red Cross needs to fix this or add a note to take a screenshot or picture of your test results. Not everyone has time to retake an entire class.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water safety/Swim training for coaches I felt that overall the review was great. The in pool training could have been a bit longer as far as making us perform the skill more than once.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible tech support and set up Although I enjoyed the content of the course itself, there needs to be something done about the website and the way it is offered. Like other people who have left reviews, I had to retake the entire course after completing more than an hour and a half of it when the page itself timed out - not a fault of my own, a technical problem on Red Cross' end as I was told from the tech support. So 5 and a half hours later, I finally finished the course, took the final exam, passed the final exam, and now over a week later I still have not received a certificate or any acknowledgment of completion. In fact, my course still shows incomplete and I can get no answers from anyone as to how to proceed; their live chat directed me to call, I spoke with someone for a little who didn't know what to do and transferred me to another area, and now I have been on hold for over 20 minutes. This is extremely unprofessional, a waste of valuable time on my part. I am very disappointed with this service. I would have much rather spent hours in person doing the course because at least I know that all the time spent will result in the certification and not wasted time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Navigate I enjoyed the ease of watching this course at my own convenience, and being able to pick up where I left off when i had to pause. The information was presented well and the scenarios were relevant.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Content, but Website PROBLEMS Although the content was good and communicated clearly, I would recommend the course ONLY because it is required by USA Swimming. I found the Red Cross website did not work; the links are broken and it was very difficult to get to the launch after I paid. When I hit the launch button, it took me directly back to the main Red Cross website. Two of my employees, who took the same course at the same time, also had the same problems with finding how to actually start the course after paying for it. I ended up paying for two classes because it was not at all user friendly. Also, because I work in segments and have limited time, it would have been nice if my progress had saved. Even though it showed that I had already watched the first two chapters, I had to REstart the course twice after I had already done it because I didn't have the time to sit down and do it all at once. I ended up staying up until 1 AM one night just to get it done. Progress should be saved and you should be able to start from where you left off, rather than having to re-start and waste more time -- or, alternatively, there should be a disclaimer that your progress will not be saved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to follow I am sad that the American Red Cross has this problems, I hope it my computer or something but I think that the ARC needs to up date it software or the way it handle all this certificates (it looks pretty bad). Also, the questions on the test are so poorly written and It is clear that a professional did not write the questions. I took this course here but I will recommend friends that the ARC should be their last resource. Disappointed customer
