About blended learning

Blended learning uses a mix of learning and assessing strategies to deliver the most time-saving and cost-effective result. It is a combination of online learning and classroom training. When you select the blended learning option you will receive an email with your login details so you can begin learning immediately then you attend the classroom training where you complete your final practical assessment. By learning at your own pace you can expect to complete the online learning and assessment in 2 to 4 hours. The classroom time is approximately 4 hours.
