“Hybrid” or “Blended” are names commonly used to describe courses in which some traditional face-to-face “seat time” has been replaced by online learning activities. The purpose of a hybrid course is to take advantage of the best features of both face-to-face and online learning. A hybrid course is designed to integrate face-to-face and online activities so that they reinforce, complement, and elaborate one another, instead of treating the online component as an add-on or duplicate of what is taught in the classroom.
Southwest EMS Academy offers a self-paced course as well as a structured “hybrid” or a blended class. If you enroll in our hybrid course, this means you will attend classes during set dates and times. The hybrid course includes live online lectures with an instructor and in-person skill sessions. Please view the available course listings for a schedule that will fit your needs.
We have a great team which is composed of some of the best Firefighters, EMTs and Paramedics in the business. All of Southwest EMS Academy Instructional staff is hand picked based on their diverse and robust experience.
