Many people have a preference for one or the other, e.g., that virtual/online or the in-person/live. One positive of the virtual/online, which actually is hybrid since we have at least one live, interactive, zoom meeting, is that you are able to view and review videotapes at your own pace. A second positive is that it is also convenient and does not require travel, time off from work, and so on. One positive of the in-person context is you are able to ask questions as they occur to you.
There is not a difference in the learning outcomes, however. Most people who train through the online format and most who train through the in-person format achieve certification. One reason for this is we want you to be certified and work with you.
