Training options vary for each class. You will be able to view and choose from the available options from the individual course page. Some courses require hands-on training and no online option is available.
Traditional Classroom is an instructor-led video course, that utilizes the “Practice as you Watch” method to effectively commit the skills to memory, allowing for easy recall and demonstration. It is hands-on, interactive, and is designed to provide the student with the confidence that they can perform the necessary skills if called upon to do so in times of an emergency. The class length varies depending on the course presented.
Online + Skills Test
The Online + Skills Test option offers the instructional portion of the class online. The average time online is much less than in the traditional classroom and the student can train at home and at their own pace. The Online completion certificate must be presented at the time of the Skills Test. The practice and skills check with an instructor lasts about 30 – 45 minutes. The course may be started at any time and Skills Test appointments may be scheduled before or after completion.
Skills Test Only
Skills Test Only is for students who have already obtained the course completion certificate from onlineaha.org and only need the practice and skills verification. The Online completion certificate must be presented at the time of the Skills Test. The practice and skills check with an instructor lasts about 30 – 45 minutes. The schedule for Skills Test appointments is available online. If an appointment is not available that meets your needs, please call (619) 200-8786 to discuss possible scheduling.
