Full in-class training or blended online learning?
The Canadian Red Cross now offers blended learning in their Emergency/Standard First Aid programs. As a training partner, Delta Emergency Support Training offers this option to the public and businesses that want to minimize classroom instruction.
With traditional standard first aid training, a student would need to attend a 2 day course in a classroom, taking 16 hours of time to complete. With the blended learning program, the student does the all the reading and tests on a computer at their own pace. With blended learning you will need 8 hours of at home study, but this can be done over several weeks.
After you complete the online training, print your verification of completion, and attend a 1 day skills course to complete the skills training session. This 6-8 hour session is focused on all the hands-on skills of a first aid program.
Once you register on our website for a blended class, you will receive an email that prompts you to create an account with the Red Cross. This account will be your learning portal for the first aid course, and where you receive your certificate.
