Classroom

(Instructor Led Training)
100% classroom training means participants are with an instructor for their entire learning experience. These classroom courses are a good option for participants who learn most best in a classroom environment with others. These courses are taught by instructors, who administer both the cognitive portion of the course and hands on skills practice and testing. Classes are conducted at our location in Wake Forest, NC -- or to make it even easier, LET US COME TO YOU!

Blended

(eLearning plus in-person Skills Check)
Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a participant completes part of the course in a self-directed manner online, followed by a hands-on session. The hands-on session is completed in person with an Instructor or using a Voice Assisted Manikin (VAM), where available. Successful blended learning can reach students with varying learning styles and in different environments. It combines the flexibility of online training with skills practice and testing for CPR and other psychomotor skills.

ELearning

(Online Only)
eLearning courses give participants the flexibility to learn at their own pace and on their own schedule, anywhere and anytime an internet connection is available. eLearning courses are fully self-directed, and do not require a separate skills testing.
