What is Blended Learning?
Our Blended First Aid courses have both an online component and a classroom component.
The online component, will focus on building your knowledge. It includes important background knowledge to note before starting your practical training. You will also read about particular first aid skills, and watch videos demonstrating how these skills are performed.
Once you complete this online component, you will be ready to move on to part two: The classroom component. The classroom component will focus on developing your skills. Your instructor will know that you have completed this online component, and so won’t spend as much time on the background information that is covered here. Make sure you take the time you need to feel comfortable with what you’re learning.
This online component covers care for adults, children, and babies. When you complete the classroom component, your skills and knowledge evaluation will focus on only the topic for which you are being certified.
You must successfully complete both the online and the classroom components to be certified in Standard First Aid & CPR.
* Please note you are REQUIRED to complete your online training before coming into class for your practical training.
