Our single most popular option is our blended delivery (also known as our express course) which provides learners with both time and flexibility to complete this qualification. This option combines both self paced learning together with face to face classes. An ITS blended delivery course allows students to complete the certain theory components of the first aid course in the comfort of your own home by viewing our presentations, watching our videos or by participating in our scheduled webinars. If you are unable to participate in our webinars don't worry, they are recorded and placed on our student portal for you to view at any time night or day 24/7, Our webinars cover course content and provide you with clear detail on the requirements of the student assessment.
You will still need to complete the practical component of this course by attending the one day practical session which is conducted as face to face training.

Blended Delivery Courses Explained
What is blended delivery?

What are the benefits of blended delivery?
There are a number of benefits to the blended delivery approach to education and training both in the workplace and for individuals.
Blended delivery improves access to training for individuals by giving them the flexibility and freedom to learn anytime, anywhere. Blended delivery also provides students with control over the pace of their learning so that difficult concepts can be reviewed as often as required.
The benefits for employers are many. Employers are able to save time, money and more importantly human resources allow them to up skill their staff without huge amounts of down time in productivity.
Who should use a blended delivery approach?
Those who will benefit the most from a blended delivery approach are:
- Employers that want to ensure they are meeting their obligations under the new workplace health and safety regulations;
- Any individual that requires "gap training" following changes to industry standards that might mean they would no longer be deemed competent;
- Any individual that wants to up-skill or demonstrate their skill level and competency to a prospective employer.
- Any individual that requires this certificate but can not afford to take time from paid employment to complete a 2 day course.

In support of the RACGP Standards and the latest evidence, it is a requirement of the QI&CPD Program that GPs maintain basic life support skills through the completion of a CPR course that meets the ARC guidelines.
The CPR component of this course has been approved by the RACGP and QI&CPD Program. GPs simply submit a copy of their CPR Statement of Attainment issued by ITS Pty Ltd to the relevant State QI&CPD unit for CPD point allocation.
All nurses and midwives must meet the continuing professional development (CPD) standards. Nurses on the nurses' register will need to participate in at least 20 hours of continuing nursing professional development per year. Registered nurses and midwives who hold scheduled medicines endorsements or endorsements as nurse or midwife practitioners under the National Law must complete at least 10 hours per year in education. One hour of active learning will equal one hour of CPD. The CPD must be relevant to the nurse or midwife's context of practice.
