blended/online LEARNING

 

Blended learning combines self-paced online training with an Instructor-led classroom session. Students first learn the course content online using a course key. After completing the online module, they attend an Instructor-led, video-based classroom portion focused on skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing.

  • The online portion allows students to complete exercises and learn at their own pace.

  • The classroom portion allows time for practice and discussion.

  • Students have access to online course for 24 months after activation, allowing them to revisit simulations and videos after they complete the course.
