Blended Learning vs Instructor Led CPR Courses
Hey guys, thanks so much for joining us today. Just wanted to make a quick post on some frequently asked questions that we typically get from students of ours. And one of the main ones (I actually just got a phone call this morning) is what type of course offerings do you have? So, in other words, what type of CPR classes are available. And really, there's quite a few, but there are two main types of programs that you can enroll in.
One of them is a hybrid or blended learning, and then one of them is a full-service or a full instructor-led course. So with that said, when it comes to the organization in which you're training with, whether it be American Heart Association, American Red Cross, maybe Health and Safety Institute, just to name a few, we do have both options available.
Blended courses are half and half. You do half of it at home, online. Then you do the other half in person with a certified instructor to verify skills and learn those skills in person using equipment.
The other option is the full instructor-led course. Now, this does not have any option for online. This is just classroom only, typically three, four, maybe five hours long in length, could even be longer than that depending on the type of class you're enrolled in. But it’s fully led in-person by a qualified instructor.
So again, most people that we see tend to prefer and like the blended approach just because it is a lot more time efficient. It gives you the option to work through some modules at home, and then you can come in for the skill session. Hopefully, you found some value in the post and can decide for yourself what's best for your learning style.
