Canadian Red Cross Blended Learning vs all in-class

Get in touch

The Canadian Blended Learning Format (BLF) is a method of learning that allows participants to learn all the theory of the first aid course online. It can be done in one’s own time, at one’s own pace. Once registration is received by us – either by registering on our website, or through email for Corporate Accounts, (weekdays, up to 7pm) – a BLF course will be created in our system that will generate an access link. Everyone enrolled in the course must have their own email as the link is sent to each participant’s individual email. Emails cannot be shared.
On completion of the theory, participants will need to attend a 6-hour in-class training session. In this session, all the practical components of the course, like CPR, choking and bandages will be explained, demonstrated, and practiced. All participants must be able to perform all the exercises. At the end of the session, a quiz will need to be completed with an achieved mark of 75%. Once done, the certificates are issued – usually by end of next business day. All certificates are valid for three (3) years.
