How long does the 8th edition Provider Curriculum take to complete?

Learners begin by taking the adaptive eLearning (called the Online Learning Assessment). The Online Learning Assessment takes anywhere from less than 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on the learner's knowledge of the content in Lessons 1 through 4. 

Class length totally depends on the instructor : learner ratio (recommended as 1 instructor: 3-4 learners), the resources available for allowing people to practice skills (waiting for their turn vs. being able to practice simultaneously), and the learners’ current skill levels. 

An Essentials instructor-led course with skills review, practice scenarios, and sim/debriefing typically takes about 2 hours. 

An Advanced instructor-led provider course (skills in Lessons 5 through 7) in the Sequential Practice and Evaluation format, should take 1.5 - 2 hours, again, depending on the variables mentioned above.
