Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is great training for the novice coach. I took this course to complete the USA coaches requirements. I did feel that some of the questions were poorly worded and the answers were not exactly lined up. I am a teacher, so this stuff stands out to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute Trash How does an orginization this large have a testing portal this awful? Absolutely awful. Took me hours to sign in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Instructor! I took this class to update my USA Coaching Certification. I don't lifeguard very often so I was a little rusting on my skills. The instructor was very patient and gave us tons of time to practice every skill!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible experience with online portion The online experience was terrible. It did not save my progress or my test results (TWICE!) The website also crashed for multiple hours on Memorial Day. The entire process took more than twice as long as it should have. I also called the online support number and kept getting disconnected after being on hold for more than 10 mins (when my wait was told me be much less). The Saba system needs to be updated or coded better. The in-water portion and instructor were great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I had to take the course twice... I was a little frustrated that I had to take the course twice. I signed up finished the modules the same day. When I came back to take the test the next day it showed that I had to start from the beginning. So I like another reviewer feel like I wasted 3 hours of my life that I will never get back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Technical issues It was an OK training. I thought the chapters were a little too short and in the scenarios the coach almost always was making mistakes-came off as preachy and upset me by the end. Technically it was a nightmare and wasted a lot of time. I completed the review of information then took the test three times because it kept sending me there when I'd check status. After taking the test I received a score noting my certificate would be approved. It never was and when I called support they indicated I hadn't started the course. They had no solution and I had to argue for credit. Very clunky system

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Website made me take the course twice I got through the first 3 hours of the online course, with everything complete except the final exam and the 1-2 min video that preceded it. My computer came unplugged and shut down, and my progress did not save as the website promised it would. When I logged back into my account, there was no way to advance to the final exam, so I was forced to endure the entire course again, just to get to the final exam. I was very frustrated by this, because the course was dreadfully slow and remedial to begin with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Course is fine, website can be frustrating Overall material was fine, quizzes and videos were helpful. Only warning is that getting an account set up was frustrating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the on-line learning; website needs work Overall a great course and wonderful to do on-line. Lots of great info. The website, however, seemed to keep locking up and then there was no record of my having done the portions that I did, so I had to go back twice and re-watch the first two chapters, which was infuriating. They also sent me a certificate of completion before I had actually finished. Once I had taken the test, though, the certificate was available once again. So overall, grateful to have on-line opportunities, but I would suggest just tweaking the website a big to get rid of those glitches.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recertification For those folks that need to re-certify, it would be great if you could just do the test only. However, it wasn't a bad way to review the material.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Record Your Course Completion! I spent my $19 and took the 3 hour course and passed the exam. After closing all windows I waited for my passing email from RC. It never came! Called them the next day and found out that there was no record of me ever taking the course. No I didn't print anything off. No I didn't take a screen shot. There's three hours I won't get back! Had to take the entire course again ... and passed again! This time there was an email! Lesson learned ... get evidence when you complete all RC courses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Course Content and Delivery Top Notch. Sign in not The only item keeping this from being a 5 star is the log in/sign in process. Took me multiple tries, resetting of passwords, apparently two different portals. Needs to be easier. But content and delivery were great. All in all, 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Effective It was really informative and it helped me learn knew things for coaching. There was a weird thing that happened everytime that I tried to sign back in, but once I figured it out it was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to understand and follow This is necessary for USA swim coaches. I liked the set-up. It was a bit long to watch but the e-book helped so much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Saba does not record work Content was fine, very basic, but saba site does not record your answers. I had to redo the course again and screenshot my exam results to get the certification. This is the second time this has happened to me.
Date published: 2018-04-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficulties Logging In I found it very difficult to log in to the course. I was forced to create a new password immediately after creating the account by using the forgot password option. When logging in to Saba for the course, there was more difficulties experienced. The course content was presented well, but logging on was a horrific experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Issues in online traning The content in the program was very helpful and expanded my knowledge. The program was very frustrating, many times flash player would crash and the further to the end that I went the more the program crashed. I feel like I could have finished about one hour earlier if I didn't have to deal with technical difficulties. The instructor in the in person session was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from STSC This was the worst experience I have ever had taking online material. It took 2 hours just to log in after my password would not work and 3X the passwords redcross sent did not work. Finically once I got in which by the way the tech did not seem surprised stating they have had problems, I took the coarse. The coarse was ok material but once I got to the exam I was on question 23 and I hit the resource button and the program kicked me out. When I went to log back in it took me to the beginning of the exam. I called to see what could be done...nothing they said almost in a condescending way as if I didn’t really view the material. Not good support or shall I say no support and very very poor I.T. For this program. It ended up taking me 10hr to take a 3 hr coarse. This program should be administered by USA swimming and not redcross.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Class & Content fine, system was bad Course was fine for what it was intended. However I ended up taking the whole thing THREE times and the system still wouldn't issue a certificate of completion. SABA didn't even recognize that I had made progress in the class. I ended up having to take the whole class over again the third time and then take screen shots of my completion of the coursework and tests to show the Red Cross folks I had finished the class. They then manually issued my completion certificate. sheeze!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor saving mode through out the course. Did not save properly through out the course. I had to take the final twice and go through all the chapters from the beginning for the second time. It was a major waste of my time, and at the end it stated that I had 8 attempts instead of 2. Major disappointment and frustration.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coaching requirements The classes are ok but could be condensed a bit. The quiz questions don't need as tricky as they do.
