Blended Learning Format

This course is offered for initial or renewal training, and has the same completion requirements that the classroom ­based equivalent courses do. Blended learning include access to the related E-­textbook in the price of the course. Students who successfully complete Part 1 receive a certificate that allows them entrance into a skills practice and testing session. You must bring your certificate of completion of Part 1 to your skills session in order to receive your certification card. The online component of the course is only the first step in obtaining your First Aid certification.
