What is BLENDED FORMAT Learning?
The goal of blended learning is to join the best aspects of both in-person and online self-paced instruction.
In-person classroom time is used for hands-on skills practice activities.
A Self-paced online course section provides students with 24/7 access to multimedia-rich content, anywhere the student has internet access.
Blended format courses meet all provincial and school requirements, and lead to the same certification as the traditional in-class format courses.
Blended format courses offer greater scheduling flexibility, self-paced learning, and less time spent in class.
