Blended first aid training is a combination of online training with a practical in-class, face-to-face skill session that provides the best of both hands-on and online training, with reduced in-class time. 

Online Learning   4 hours
In-Class Teaching Time    4.5 hours

The Emergency Childcare First Aid course meets child licensing requirements and includes the latest first aid and CPR guidelines.

COVID-19 Considerations

We kindly ask anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat and painful swallowing to stay home and not attend the training session.
