Participants have the option of being certified through two methods; a traditional model and a blended model. During the traditional face to face course, you will receive all of your information and instruction during the allotted class time. The blended method combines both an online portion and a face to face skills session. The blended model allows the user to complete the knowledge piece of the course online and then attend a skills session where you will be taught the skills portion. Those who are short on time or need to work within strict parameters usually chose the blended model. There is no cost difference. An asterick indicates those courses where blended learning is offered.
