I've taken the plunge and set up my business to do blended first aid i.e. part elearning and part face to face. This means the learner does the elearning part before the classroom session and prints off the elearning certificate to prove completion. They then attend the face to face day/s to finish the award. Less classroom time - can even be part completed at home.
So for Paediatric first aid complete up to 6 hrs of elearning and then attend for one full day to complete the full regulated award.
For a First Aid at Work initial course, complete up to 6 hrs of elearning and then attend for 2 days classroom work to gajn the full regulated award.
