Thousands of professionals and other citizens are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) each year. Around 65% of Americans report they have had CPR training at some point, but only around 18% to 20% are current on their training. This number may be changing soon, however, with alternative learning options starting to become available through most training providers. Virtual classroom options mixed with in-person sessions through blended learning will allow more people easy and quick access to valuable lifesaving treatment information and first aid. A recent American Heart Association (AHA) study found that lack of access may be a significant factor in why so few people remain up-to-date on their certification. Blended learning may be the answer to how people can remain certified more easily today. CPR4LIFE USA offers a complete range of courses for various degrees of certification, including in-person and blended learning options. Professionals, students, employers, and other people looking to update their AHA certifications and expand their training for CPR in Minneapolis, MN and the surrounding area can schedule courses with our team of expert instructors.
We offer several CPR courses, including onsite and workplace training and blended learning. Blended learning courses have in-person and virtual components, and those classes are available for First Aid, CPR, AED, and Basic Life Support (BLS) certification.
In-person training and skills take place over one session. This is a standard practice for all types of courses, from healthcare BLS to first aid. In-person courses have the benefit of learning with a group and going through the training and practice all at once. If you find that breaking the training and skills practice into two sessions would be detrimental to your learning process, in-person training may be the better option. Additionally, if you are an employer looking to certify your team, attending in-person in one session may be more suitable to your work schedule.
CPR and Blended Learning
With a virtual and in-person component to certification, blended learning is broken down into two sessions. The learning and information part of the course is incorporated into an e-learning system that allows students to virtually access our classes. It allows students to learn at their own pace and potentially absorb information better. After virtual courses and an assessment are finished, students take part in a second session that covers skillsets in person. Blended learning has its advantages. It’s more convenient for some students and creates a standardized training process that supports a higher quality of CPR.
