The classroom option offers first time and season students the opportunity to experience a traditional interactive class with video, real life footage, additional science and in depth discussion, with hands on practice. This setting also allows more open discussions between students and instructor.

Option 2:  Blended Learning

Blended Learning course called HeartCode BLS uses the latest eSimulation technology to enable students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. Utilizing a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities, this course teaches BLS knowledge and skills.

 

This method of learning provides training consistency, adaptability to different learning styles, and flexibility for the student’s and employer’s time. Students can work at their own pace applying their knowledge to real-time decision making and skills development. Blended training also supports the need for hands-on learning of psychomotor skills. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation.
