Online CPR Training Available As Alternative To In-Person Classes
In light of the recent Coronavirus outbreak, CPR Training Source will continue to offer online CPR training, as an alternative to in-person CPR classes.

CPR Training Source and Colin Sanders are pleased to announce that the company will offer online CPR training as an alternative to in-person classes. This format revision is due to the recent coronavirus outbreak (Covid 19). The health challenges which may arise due to the pandemic make it particularly important to ensure as many people as possible have CPR training. In an effort to limit congregating for in-person classes, the CPR Training Source has emphasized training through its online format

Studies have shown that the American Heart Association eLearning is as effective as classroom-based training. When measured by students’ retention of course content, effectiveness is shown by statistics. The average retention rate for an instructor-led class is 58%; the eLearning experience enhances the retention rate by 25–60%. Higher retention of content is possible because technology allows for flexibility in individual learning styles.

For courses that include psychomotor skills, course delivery in two or three parts effectively blends cognitive learning with hands-on psychomotor skills training. A U.S. Department of Education report indicates students who took all or part of their class online performed better, on average than those who took the course through in a classroom setting in a wide range of studies, online learning appears to be an effective option for professionals and college students.

Depending on course content, eLearning courses are delivered in one, two or three parts. Courses that only involve cognitive learning can be completed online in one part. For courses that contain psychomotor skills such as CPR, students must complete in-person skills in addition to online learning. A skills session is comprised of skills practice and skills testing. This three-part delivery effectively blends cognitive learning with skills training. Students are not able to experience the delivery of physical skills from a PC, so eLearning is only as effective as the skills training provider.

For successful course completion, AHA requires that eLearning courses with psychomotor skills include online cognitive lessons; hands-on skills practice; and hands-on skills testing.
