Blended Learning, Emergency First aid and CPR course I Online Theory, In-Class practical (equivalent to Occupational First Aid Level 1)
Blended learning is a comprehensive training method that combines online multimedia instruction with instructor-led and hands-on in-class training.
The successful completion of the blended learning Emergency First Aid course is a three-step process.
1. You Need To Complete The Online Theory
Through computer-based training structured in a self-paced modular format, the blended learning Emergency First Aid course allows students to access audio and text instruction as well as instructional videos and quizzes. A passing mark of 80% is the requirement to proceed to each successive module.
Advantages of the computer-based training are as follows:
- You work at your own pace and schedule
- The courses are interactive and customizable
- You have unlimited course access for two years
- And you can start your course immediately
2. Attend In-class Training
Following the completion of the computer-based theory, students are required to attend the in-class portion of the course. This is delivered by an instructor and the focus is on the practical application of the course content.
Advantages of the in-class training are as follows:
- The classes are held at convenient locations and times
- You get to participate in hands-on training
- You learn from experienced instructors
- Training time is half the time the traditional course format would take
3. Write The Exam
Upon the successful completion of the in-class training, students write the government-approved Emergency First Aid test.

Do I get my certification after my class is finished?
You will get a temporary certificate from Mainland Safety that proves you took and passed one of our courses, but will not receive the actual Canadian Red Cross certification until 5-10 business days after course completion, which will be online through the email registered with Mainland safety and Canadian Red Cross.
