About Blended Learning (1/2 Online. 1/2 In-Class)
The purpose of Canadian Red Cross blended delivery is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to sustain life and minimize the consequences of injury or sudden illness until advanced medical help arrives. This program offers Standard First Aid (SFA), Emergency First Aid (EFA) and CPR/AED (CPR) courses to meet the training needs of those in workplace, school and community settings.
- Level A (Adult, free upgrade to level C)
- Level C (Adult, Child, Baby)
- Level HCP (Health Care Provider)
The Online Component
Each blended learning course is divided into two components. Participants must first complete the self-paced online component, which includes written knowledge evaluations. There are built in accessibility features to make the blended learning delivery as user friendly as possible (audio, live chat, print, feedback, etc.)
The In-class Component
After successful completion of the online component, participants then complete an instructor-led classroom component (skills practice and evaluation session) in order to achieve certification. Participants must complete the classroom component within four weeks of completing the online component.
Important: If a participant does not attend a classroom session within this four-week time span, they must purchase another ePIN and re-take the online component before being admitted into the classroom.
WSIB Requirements Met
- SFA fulfills all WSIB requirements (required for workplaces with more than 5 workers on any given shift)
- EFA fulfills some WSIB requirements (required for workplaces with less than 5 workers on any given shift)
- CPR is not covered under WSIB
Knowledge and Skill Objectives
The knowledge and skill objectives remain the same as those in the traditional in-class course. Participants must complete all skill and knowledge requirements for successful completion of the course.
