Completing my Responsible Adult Course was a positive experience. The layout of the course was easy to navigate and the course modules were well written. For instance I particularly enjoyed the prompts to take breaks, and the activities suggested for the breaks. Overall, I think the Responsible Adult Course offered through Head Start Online School is a great course.
