Blended Learning – Standard First Aid with CPR/AED Level C

This is a new way to achieve certification in Standard First Aid with CPR/AED Level C.  This new delivery method combines an online portion and an in-class portion that saves both time and money.  All of the same topics are covered, with zero compromise to standards or quality.  The advantage is gained when the participant is allowed to complete the theory aspect at their own pace, and on their own schedule, and then complete the skills aspect with a Certified Instructor at a later date.  For all the information you need and some frequently asked questions, check out our Fact Sheet and FAQ’s.  Blended Learning Program – Info Sheet and FAQ

Blended Learning

Blended learning is a combination of in-class, and online course delivery.  Theory and information are conveyed to participants through an online component, which is completed at the participants own pace and schedule.  Participants also attend an in-class session which concentrates on skill development, and the application of theory.  The online session is completed first, and upon successful completion, participants will print and bring their online completion certificate with them to the in-class skills session.  The in-class session must be completed within 4 weeks of completing the online portion.  After showing that the proper skills can be demonstrated, and obtaining a passing grade on the written exam, participants will receive their official Certificate from the Red Cross Instructor.  Ultimately this saves on the time committed for everyone.  By only having to commit to 1 day of in-class training, and completing the online in your spare time, or by setting aside an hour a day, your time is better optimized and becoming compliant with workplace safety standards is less of an inconvenience.

At this time in Ontario, the Canadian Red Cross is only eligible to offer the Standard First Aid with CPR and AED Level C Blended Learning opportunity.  Eventually the option will exist to take CPR, Level A, C, or HCP, Emergency First Aid, and Re-Certs through this method.  To learn more about the process and see some frequently asked questions, please view our Fact Sheet and FAQ.
