What is a Blended Course?
A blended course is a combination of online and in-person training. Participants take an online course whose length depends on the course being taken. This online course teaches you the theory and an over view of the skills.
Once you have completed the online portion of the course you will need to take an in-person session where the focus is on preforming the skills and putting it all together. The length of the in-person session also depends on the course being taken. After you complete the in-person portion of the course you will earn your 3-year certificate. Once you complete your online portion you must complete the in-person portion of the course within 4 weeks.
What is the benefit of taking a Blended Course instead of a traditional full in-person course?
We are encouraging all our participants to consider the Blended courses at this time as it requires less time spent in the the classroom. This will help reduce your contact with others.
It also allows you to complete half of the course at your own pace and speed by doing the theory of the course online. You are able to re-read portions on your own as needed as well as watching the videos of the skills over again if you wish.
Our Blended courses are WSIB approved, and are listed under our upcoming courses.
