Safety Training for Swim Coaches Online Content Only is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Most of this is a waste of time This course is an insult to experienced coaches. This is the second time I have had to take this course. I have a degree in coaching and 16 years experience. I don't need to learn how to teach someone to dive. No matter your level of experience, everyone is subjected to the same beginning level of instruction. The scenarios are an insult to intelligence and make coaches look stupid. This class should be leveled based on experience and need. It's not very realistic either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straightforward and Valuable This was my second time doing this course - I was due for a recertification. I don't remember if anything was different the first time around, but this time I was pleasantly surprised about how straightforward and streamlined the process was. Lots of valuable information, good quiz questions, etc. I particularly liked the "scenarios," as these help give a real-life example of the theoretical knowledge the course focuses on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good course required to take this for registration, it's been almost 7 years since last renewed, and the course has been improved significantly. there are only two areas that i feel could use improvement. one, there are some poorly worded questions in the test, that end up testing your reading and test taking ability rather than if you know the information, and the other is trying to contact a live person in the Red Cross.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from overall a BAD expereince I am required to do STFSC through Red Cross for USA Swimming. I completed about 3/4 of the entire course and then had to be somewhere. With many other courses, you are free to come and go and take the class/course as your schedule allows. NOT this test. I had to start over and spend more hours taking a test that I had already all but completed. No help from Red Cross either. Get it right!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good class I had to take this class for my swim coach's cert and I found it to be well written and easy to follow. Some of the quiz questions are taken from the additional resources, so one needs to look at those. Signing up for this class was not possible online - I had to call in, get transferred, have a password reset, etc. The class itself was straight forward.
Date published: 2017-12-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Technology was awful to use! Course itself was informative and relevant to my coaching position. My problem is with the technology. It is not able to be paused as it states, it is difficult to find the course, register for it and obtain the proper certification for it. I had to restart three times, and then had to email and eventually call about obtaining the correct certification.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot Even Access Class I am currently a swim coach and I purchased this class to renew my certification. I followed the instructions given on the USA swimming website as well as the multiple emails from the Red Cross and I still cannot access the class. I had to take the same class two years ago when I first started coaching and I had no issues whatsoever taking the class.
Date published: 2017-12-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of relevant and interesting information The course was excellent, albeit very long if you read all the additional information (took me 4 hours). The scenarios were on point and relevant. Signing up for the course was not easy and assistance was required- more work is needed to make the signing up for classes more user friendly and to navigate on the Red Cross site.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covered a lot I feel there was too much information covered all a one single sitting and it would be better for the learning to have it compartmentalized and tested separately. I want to be the best coach I can be and I don't feel I was able to comprehend all of the information because it was too extensive to digest at one sitting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safety Training for Swim Coaches Being a Lifeguarding Instructor for many years, I found this training redundant. I have gone through this training at least 5 times and was bored by it. I understand the importance of being highly aware of safety concerns, but there has to be a better way to do this for veteran coaches like myself.
Date published: 2017-10-11
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Compulsory I took this course because it was a mandatory requirement to maintain coaching certification and needs to be completed every two years - it is the same course I took 2 years ago. I would have really enjoyed being able to skip through all the videos and just taken the test to have saved my time.
Date published: 2017-11-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor website The contend is fine and well presented. The website is terrible. It is supposed to save the last place of the user. I got kicked back to chapter one two times. The second time I was almost done. It needs to be looked at. Based on other reviews, I am not the only one experiencing this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Safety Training for Swim Coaches Finished the course and did not receive a certificate of completion. Called customer service and they did not help, told me to retake the course, which is what I did. Had to take the entire course twice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Coaches safety training Total disaster. Could not get in. Once in could not finish it two times. Then could not get back in as it licked me out. Paid twice at two different times but still issues on your end. I wouldn't register 1 star if I had an option for zero.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safety Training for Swim Coaches The course focuses on how a coach can assist the lifeguards in case a swimmer becomes injured or has issues swimming. We went over rescuing close to the deck, injuries to the neck, head and spine, and assisting them out of the water.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from STSM Many problems getting the video to play and I spoke with six different reps and finally got someone who was able to help me after two days. There should be options available to read the information and skip the video

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Red Cross problem again Once again I have to spend a few hours trying to get a hold of a human to find my lost certificate. Unbelievable. Unfortunately we have to go through this unstable and irritating website that loses most certs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changes Expanded information since I last took the course. I feel the safety issues of coaches interacting with teenagers, possible locker room incidents was glossed over. The extra first aid information was amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Review for Safety Training for Swim Coaches A very succinct course. The material was clearly presented and assessment was fair. With the busy schedule that I have, I am appreciative that the class is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Date published: 2017-12-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Required Frustrating that I had to create a whole new account in order to renew certification vs just being able to register for course or register over the phone which I didn't feel comfortable down ny.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from missing the second part of this course the class was easy to take but it has the water portion and has no information about where and how to get the training for in water skills which is required for the certification to be complete.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flaw in the system Finished but it was a horrific experience. Your system crashes or you take a break and you need to start at the beginning again. Finished the class but it doesn’t register that you finished.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well- Designed course, poor functionality I took the course - clear explanations, relevant questions, but the server crashed several times while takin the course and mycertificate required the extra effort of a live operator

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor website hosting The ability to signup, and navigate to the course, needs improved. I had three different website tech chats, and it took 2 days to get to the course. The course itself ran smoothly.
