Blended learning is a combination of in-class, face-to-face instruction with online instruction. Typically, theory and information are conveyed to the participants outside of the classroom through an online component. This allows for the in-class component to concentrate on skills development and the application of theory.
For Blended Learning through 62 Degrees North, a self-paced, online component is completed first, followed by an in-class skills session with a Red Cross certified training partner or registered paramedic. Benefits of Blended Learning include:
- Blended Learning makes it easier to schedule employee training without interrupting day-to-day business.
- Employees can complete the online portion of their training at their own pace – over a period of weeks or hours. This is perfect for busy schedules.
- Blended Learning can save more than eight hours in business downtime per employee.
- Attending the one-day, in-class session and passing the knowledge evaluation ensures the student has a solid comprehension of the course material.
