Standard First Aid and CPR Level Certificate | First Aid Care
What is Canadian Red Cross Blended Learning?
- Essentially, the course has two components: (i) An Online Learning part — the theory — and (ii) an In-class session. The in-class session is meant to cover all the practical aspects of the course, e.g.: Performing CPR and applying bandages, etc.
- Unless all in-class is requested (two full days, minimum 7 participants), all our courses are in the Blended Learning Format.
