Blended Learning Program
Our blended course curriculum is taught by an Elite Technical Training Center instructor using the online platform of our partner, the American Red Cross. You will be able to complete the theory portion of your training ONLINE at YOUR CONVENIENCE. Skills and labs are taught in a classroom setting. Clinicals provide you with practical, hands-on training. Once you have completed this portion, you will be equipped and ready to take the state exam to complete your certification. ETTC is committed to helping you pass the exam!
If you prefer to learn in the classroom, our Instructor-Led teaching format is for you. The theory, skills and labs all are taught by a licensed nurse in a classroom setting throughout the program duration.
