About Blended Learning Courses
Blended learning combines the
convenience of online learning with a shortened practical skills session to meet
both knowledge and skill objectives for learners and provides flexibility and
self-control for the learner. Blended learning is an easy to use, self directed,
active experience that appeals to many volunteers. Advanced registration is
required to provide ample time to complete the online portion prior to the
class. Students and instructors can automatically receive email notification
regarding enrollment, follow-up, and completion associated with the training
program. After registering, you will receive a link via email at least 10 days
prior to the class with instructions on how to complete the online portion of
the class. Students must successfully complete both the online and skills
portions of Blended Training. Completion of the online portion alone will not
result in a certification. The online portion must be completed prior to
attending class. Failure to do so will remove the student from class and they
will have to register and pay again for another class.
An adult who has taken GSUSA approved First Aid and CPR training
and volunteers to provide safety services to a troop is a first aider. First
aiders are required when troops participate in activities that need council
approval. The Safety-Wise chapter of Volunteer Essentials discusses first aiders
and defines who qualifies as a First Aider and Wilderness First Aider.
