How Blended Learning Works. This blended learning course includes an eLearning portion and an in person, instructor-led classroom skills session. The eLearning portion MUST be completed before attending the scheduled in-class portion and can be completed at YOUR OWN PACE. Most learners complete the eLearning in approximately 3-4 hours.
Step 1. You will receive an email containing the direct link to the eLearning once registration is complete. PLEASE EMAIL US IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE THE REGISTRATION EMAIL WITHIN 24 HOURS.
Step 2. Compete the eLearning PRIOR to the in-person skills session. Compete at your own pace!
Step 3. Schedule and complete the IN-PERSON hands-on skills session.
