As a leader in resuscitation education, the Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF) now offers eLearning as an alternative to traditional classroom-based training. Using technology (computers, internet), eLearning provides flexible, convenient, self-paced training for individuals looking to balance educational requirements with the demands of everyday life and a fast-paced workplace.
Growth and Benefits
eLearning is becoming a more commonly used learning format. It allows students to learn at their own pace within their own styles and schedules, while offering employers faster training programs that overcome location and scheduling barriers. More organizations today are taking advantage of the flexibility and convenience of
HSF eLearning course formats are offered in three parts.Part one uses online learning to focus on the knowledge requirements needed to succeed. Part two comprises skills practice and part three involves skills testing. Depending on course requirements, some courses that only involve knowledge-based learning can be completed online within part one. For courses that require hands-on skills training, such as CPR, students must also complete parts two and three in an in-person classroom setting. Using a combination of eLearning and hands-on skills training, this three-part delivery system effectively blends knowledge-based learning with skills training.
For successful completion of eLearning courses that include hands-on skills training, HSF requires the completion of all three sections:
Part 1: Online lessons (computer and internet access required)
Part 2: In classroom hands-on skills practice
Part 3: In classroom hands-on skills testing
