Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great course. Log out of the course to bookmark! After having to contact customer service to be able to purchase and access the course, it was smooth sailing. The course was well done (and not boring). I asked customer service about reviews saying the course does not bookmark where you leave off. I was told you have to log out of the course for your place in course to be bookmarked. If you just close your browser without logging out, you may have to start from the beginning of the course next time you log in. So, be sure to log out from the course!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Glitchy I had difficulty signing up for the course due to technical issues and then was unable to receive my certificate due to additional technical errors. I shouldn't have to contact support to sign up AND complete a course.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good content, but a bad platform The course itself was good, but I had to take it a second time after the program failed to record that I had taken it and passed the exam. Online and phone support from Red Cross consisted of, essentially, "bummer, dude." Be sure to TAKE A SCREEN SHOT of the notification that you passed the exam.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burdensome, Repetitive, and, Mandatory.... It's great for the Red Cross that this material is mandatory, otherwise it certainly would not be used by anyone. Compared to USA Swimming materials, it's technically inferior, slow-moving, and not precisely helpful. Sometimes the questions are very specific about their terminology, other-times the questions loose, perhaps the content wasn't developed by a coherent team.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from safety training for swim coaches online content Navigating to the online course was cumbersome. I had to break up the sessions into two days. While it saved my place, when I completed and passed the test, it showed that I hadn’t completed the sessions I took the previous day. I want through two chapters before receiving the email regarding my certificate of completion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Help desk was great...on line class NOT Course content good... on line program terrible... hard to maneuver, I couldn't sign back in after I left the program and was "timed-out"... program summary stated I had 2 attempts before I passed the class (I did not)... too bad

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Website Hard to Navigate I have yet to be able to log on to your site with my password from the previous log-in. Each time I have to get help and change my password. At least this time the people who helped from the Red Cross were good. Last time I asked for help I was put on hold while the Red Cross representative went home.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORST WEBSITE EVER For a company that offers so much, it is truly stuck in the 1990s. I have never once had a positive experience on this website and if the training wasn't required for my job I would go ANYWHERE ELSE. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Format! I loved the content of the course and how it was delivered in chapters. The quiz questions were often focused on the best answer among right answers so it challenged the thought process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a pain! It is a shame that an organization with such a good reputation as well as good information/ product is using an interface this flawed. You would think after offering blended learning for years they would have resolved the issues. The information is good and pertinent however using the online options is awful. It is difficult to navigate; I could not find how to start the program after I paid for it. I also was unsure initially how to move from one section/ topic to another. The pace was too slow and unable to be sped up. I had read the issues with not stopping so I dedicated 3.5 hours to taking it in one sitting so the system would not lose my place. Upon finishing my test, and scoring 100%, I was not able to find or print anything that said I had passed. When I searched for it again later It said I had attempted to take the class 3 times, which was not the case. After several attempts to find anything that said I successfully completed the online class and what what my score was I finally just took a screen shot. Super disappointed in this "class". Especially after just taking the blended learning online portion of the CPR/First Aid. Which was also a slow pace but well functioning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse than flying with Frontier Almost every time I go to take a test or print a something, I have to call RedCross. Almost ever time, I am told there is a glitch in the system. RedCross, please don’t become like Frontier where their motto should be, “It’s your fault for flying with us!” Fix your system to be more user friendly, reliable, and quick!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stressful test The test for us swim coaches was very informative. However, the quizzes and Final exam were frustrating. Couldn't find an answer in the tutorial to one of the quiz questions (3-4 things of out 6), left to find in in the eBook, and couldn't return to where I left off. Had to start all over and pay again, too. In the Final Exam, it seemed there were quite a few questions that weren't in the tutorial but were in the eBook. That was frustrating! I feel a lot to ask of us to sit through 3+ hours of videos and quizzes and test us. Quizzes were good enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bookmarking never works! This is the second time I have had to take this course for my certifications and the second time it does not keep my bookmarks. I always need to take the course in one sitting as my initial attempt of returning to the second half of the course “later” always brings me back to the introduction. This time around, I took the course in one sitting (after the first attempt of bookmarking not working), I took the exam and there was NO record of me having taken the course nor was my certificate available after I scored 98% on the test. Thankfully, after my call to Red Cross was escalated past the initial level of customer service (friendly and understanding of the frustration), RC was able to locate my test and issue a certificate. I log in through the link sent in e-mail so there must be something faulty with logging in via that route. Disappointing that two years later this issue is still not resolved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bugged The course was fine but did not save my progress halfway through, despite me having made sure it was saved before logging out. This seems like a very simple and easy thing for them to be able to incorporate, so the fact that I will spend an additional hour and a half on this course makes me infuriated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Finishing the Course The content was fine. Easy to follow and presented in an organized way. Final test was taken - the final screen said I passed. My two options on that screen were to "Take A Survey" or "Return to Menu." I returned to the Menu, only to find out that none of the Chapters said "Completed" even though I did go thru all sections. At this point, I am looking for an email with my certificate, since I passed the course with 92%. Deciding that maybe I didn't get the email because the Chapters didn't say completed, I clicked thru all of the videos AGAIN. Still no email, and the Final Test said Completed. Clicked on that task bar again, and took the test a second time. Passed again with 98%. Still, no direction on what to do once I got to the screen indicating I had passed! Two options are to Take a Survey and Return to Menu. Thought I'd try Take the Survey this time, since my route last time did not send me an email with my certificate. (Also, tried logging into the site again and under My Classes, it indicated that I had not completed the course - although I did take the test twice at this point and passed both times.) Called Customer Service. The gentleman was somewhat helpful although it took 30 minutes to get to a point where I felt like my work would get credit. During this phone conversation, I took the test a THIRD time - passed again with 98%. We took screen shots of the results page and after I emailed that screen shot, was told that all I needed to do was exit out of that screen. A simple message - Congrats, you have passed the course. Please exit out of this screen to complete the course and receive your certificate via email. - would have saved me an hour+ of frustration and time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice format for learning Key information that applied to my work environment (coaching in an outdoor pool) was taught which was appreciated and more importantly applicable. The video scenarios reinforced what the lesson chapter included as well.
