First aid has traditionally been taught entirely within the classroom, but people learn in different ways and at different speeds. This approved Blended eLearning Standard/Intermediate First Aid with CPR & AED course has been designed so that you can complete it at your own pace, in your own time. Not only will you learn more effectively but you will also have more fun learning.
This course has two components:
- An online first aid theory component
- A classroom-based first aid practical skills component
The Online Theory Component
Covers all relevant theory you need to complete before taking the practical training session. Each module will be thoroughly explained with minimal technical terminology and include a helpful review section.
The theory component may take up to eight hours to complete, , but typically takes up to 4-5 hours, depending on your knowledge base. But you do not have to finish all of the theory in one seating (one module a day is the recommended pace to maximize learning). You can log into and out of the course as you please. If you are interrupted, just log out and log back in when you have more time and your place in the course will be maintained.
Practical Training Component
In the Practical Training session, an accredited instructor will answer any questions that you have as a result of the theory course and will then demonstrate a number of first aid techniques including: emergency scene management, and treatment for shock, unconsciousness, fainting, adult choking, CPR, AED, severe bleeding and much more.
Who Can Benefit From This Course
Persons assigned to respond to emergencies in the workplace or community as well as those who want to learn first aid, CPR and AED skills.
