Online training is quickly becoming an alternative to traditional classroom learning. Many courses are becoming available in an online format allowing students to learn at their own pace and on their own schedule. While classroom learning can still be more effective in some cases, online training provides a good alternative; especially when classroom courses are not possible or practical. Blended learning provides the best of both worlds by combining online training with in-person skills sessions for a flexible but thorough training option. Many common certification classes are available in a blended learning format to provide students with multiple options for receiving certification, including CPR AED First Aid, Basic Workplace CPR First Aid, Occupational CPR and First Aid, Basic Life Support (BLS), and Basic First Aid.
