Blended Learning Classes:
These classes allow the student to complete the online material on his/her own time. However, the online work must be completed prior to coming to the on-site portion of the class. This means that there are 7.5 hours of online coursework that must be completed 5 business days prior to the on-site session (listed below). The on-site session begins with the in-water pre-course evaluation. The student must pass the pre-course evaluation in order to continue with the on-site class.
