What is a blended course and is virtual training available? (Virtual Training Related)

A blended course combines the theoretical and practical session of the training. There are two parts to a course, the theoretical session, which is the classroom instruction and the practical session, which is usually the “hands on” portion of the course. The practical session of the course must be completed in person. However, we are currently offering a virtual theoretical training option for customers who would like to pursue training when travel may not be possible.
