For the continued safety of staff and students in line with current COVID settings, the following measures are in place:

  • PPE including masks and gloves are available at our public classes for students
  • All students are required to wear masks during any assessments that prevent them from maintaining 1.5m distance from another student
  • Students will not be required to practice first aid techniques on other students or staff, only on themselves or a manikin. For example, bandaging, CPR, recovery position and use of EpiPens will not be conducted on others. Students will not be directed to breathe into a manikin at this time.
  • Thorough cleaning of all equipment after every class
  • Alcohol based hand sanitiser is available throughout the venue for use upon arrival, during class and on departure
  • We discard all bandages, dressings or other class consumables at the end of the class and they are not re-used

If a student has tested positive for COVID-19 in the 7 days prior they must not attend any face-to-face St John training course.

For a limited time only, all First Aid training will come with access to our Infection Control eLearning course that participants can complete online in just 45 minutes.

Students will receive a link to the course on their student readiness page.

This course provides practical advice for you and your workplace teams to follow to help reduce the spread of infection such as Coronavirus.

Crisis Support & Mental Health Course

This course is suitable for community workers, and people in the workplace and community who may be involved in crisis intervention.

With mental health issues becoming more commonplace and First Aiders being called upon to help with colleagues, friends, family and members of the public, the Trainer will cover practical steps to take to recognise and support people with mental health issues. Students will engage in a range of practical scenarios, following the Action Plan outlined in the course.

The course topics include the principles of crisis intervention, recognising and responding to signs of a person who may be at risk and providing support to people at risk.

This course is taught by St John trainers with over 100 years of combined experience and backgrounds in Nursing, Education and Leadership. They are ready to share their experience and passion with you that creates confidence to perform first aid should you ever need to.
