The in-person format delivers information in a traditional classroom setting and allows students to interact with each other, as well as the instructor. Meanwhile, the blended Simulation Learning format gives students the opportunity to enjoy online instruction – so they can attend class at their leisure, and spend time studying the information on their schedule. Both courses culminate in an in-person skills session, which allows students to show their skills to a certified instructor and receive full certification upon passing the skills exam.
