What is Blended Learning?
Blended First Aid courses include both an online learning component and a classroom component.
The Blended course is an interactive online course that will build on your first aid theory and prepare you for practical training. You will read about specific first aid skills and watch videos demonstrating how these skills are performed. Once you complete the online component, you will be ready to move on to the classroom component. Your instructor will demonstrate how to apply the skills you have learned in real life situations and you will get the opportunity to practice these skills.
You must successfully complete both the online and the classroom components in order to receive your certificate. We recommend you complete the online course before attending your in-class training. However, please still attend your practical session even if you have not completed your online course. Our standard rescheduling and cancellation policies apply to Blended courses.
If you complete your online course after attending the practical training, please call or email us at 416-524-6083 or firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us so that we can issue your card.
