Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Content, Could not sumbit exam! So I must admit the contact was good, it covered a lot of material all of which was useful and presented in a clear manner. No complaint on the actual substance, however after completing the 4 hour training and final exam after I was not able to submit the exam! I took the exam a 2nd time on a different computer and browser.. nothing... I called and they had no record of me taking the exam!! I had to take the exam a third time over the phone, this phone call was over 1 hour in length while trying to figure out what was going on... So overall I would recommend the course but you should hope that what ever is wrong with the system has been fixed so you do not need to go through what I did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Convenient Course- but a few glitches I loved that this course was online and easy to understand, interactive, and relevant. However, I did have a few problems with the interactive parts of the lesson, specifically the drag and drop portions of the course. I tried multiple computers and multiple internet connections to try to fix the problem, but it didn't work. Finally, after calling tech support (who were very helpful and patient!) I was able to complete the course. I only wish that there was a simpler version of the course I could take online if the current course wasn't working correctly. It was frustrating because I knew the answer I needed to submit, but the program wasn't allowing it. Hopefully future courses run smoother.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Instructor Instructor was great, and well versed in the material, also great at communicating and being available to answer further questions. However the pool was not conducive to a learning environment for this particular course. Not enough supplies, and a lot of the safety equipment at the pool was broken or not working. Also, not everything was covered in the time it needed to be covered. For example, we had approximately 1.5 hours to learn everything about administering emergency oxygen, then were tested on the material directly afterwards by another instructor who prompted us with incorrect answers, which effected many of our test scores.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great course until the final exam wouldn't submit! I loved the course and it offered a lot of great ideas. However, I've been trying to complete it for over a month, have gone through the entire course over 20+ times, taken the final exam more times than I can count and every single time, the SUBMIT button at the end won't go anywhere! Then when I log in to try again, it takes me back to lesson 2 each time! When I called support, they told me I have to actually watch the videos and that it shows I have spent under 1 minute each time I've logged in! Really?! Do they think I'd waste that much time doing that! I told them there is a glitch, but they just told me to reset my cookies! I've tried on 4 different computers in 3 browsers!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Glitchy and ARC Support Had No Solutions It took four computers with 3 different operating systems to finally get through the material. Each time I had to switch computers I had to repeat the content. All in all, it was a very frustrating experience. When I called ARC Support, they didn't seem to have any plan to address the technical concerns, they just said "Try a different computer"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible set up I started taking this course last March. It was very very difficult to register and had to make multiple phone calls to the red cross. I told my fellow coaches and they’ve all had the same issues with various Red Cross courses. I thought I had completed the course, but after a fire in our pool where the coaches office was destroyed, I went back to find my certificate. It said that I had not completed the course. I couldn’t believe that I had to take the course AGAIN!! Then when my neighborhood electricity went out in the middle of me taking it and having completed over 2 chapters, I went back in and nothing had saved. Now for the third time, I had to start AGAIN. Unbelievable!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Technology Nightmare! I took this course in order to satisfy the requirement by the state for coach's certification. The program was user friendly, however, there were many technical glitches. I completed the first section and was proceeding to the second section when the program "timed out" and my progress was lost. When attempting another day, on a different computer, I was unable to complete lesson 3 as the program would not allow me to answer the last question of the quiz despite logging on and off multiple times. For an already long course, this took more time than needed to complete given the setbacks I had along the way. The content was repetitive and I felt over done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good info - lots of technical issues during course The info was great. Glad I took it. Plan to require all my staff take it as well. Frustrated by the technical issues with during the course. Had to take the final exam 3 different times because the "Submit Exam" button at the end quit working. Eventually the ARC took care of the problem, but it doubled my time invested in the course. I'm hope they have corrected this issue.
