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 4 out of 5 by from ARC - Safety Training for Swim Coaches While the content is valuable, I wish there was another option for review or for those of us who are already certified to teach it.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Course content vs Course Final Exam I have taken this course many times. I continue to find that the material taught in the course content is different than the course final exam. While all the course content is important and valuable, the test does reflect the importance that we as coaches/instructors need to have in the forefront of our profession. I would also like to ADD that I spent 3 hours on the first part of the course and the next day went to finish the course and NO WHERE could I find the work I had done. Moving through the website is cumbersome and does seems to flow smoothly PLUS I had to start from the beginning and take the course all at one time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Class, poor follow up. After inquiring about a specific class I need in the Chicago area after taking an on line class, I got a canned email response suggesting I call an 800 number for more information. This seems counter productive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I spent 4 hours working on this class to completion to find out that none of my work was saved. When I contacted the help line there was nothing they could do for me and said “the website sometimes does that”. Ridiculous. I had to spend another 4hrs redoing the class because it is required for my job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good information for all coaches I was very pleased with the content of the coaching areas of the course. Some of the information was new and some was not, but all information was pertinent to solid coaching. I have a current lifeguard certification, which you accept as water skills, but I had to go through over an hour of online training for skills for which I am already certified. I also had trouble logging on to the start up of the online class each time I began training. I also had trouble when I completed the test. At first I got a screen saying I passed but it would take 3 days to receive my certificate, but this screen disappeared. When I logged onto my account, it showed I had not completed the course. I left it all and came back a couple of hours later, I had an email with a link to print my certificate. Confusing at best on that portion of the training.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had to Pass/Take Class Twice The class was fine. About what you would expect from an on line course. Unfortunately, after successfully passing the class, the red cross had no record of me taking/passing the class. I ended up having to retake the class from the beginning. Calling the Red Cross was no help whatsoever.

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 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
