About Virtual Classroom Training

The Provide First Aid Virtual Classroom option happens in a live online video conference, which provides the benefit of the live classroom environment, but in the comfort of your own home. 

Your qualification is equivalent to the same achieved via face to face training.

  • Course equipment such as manikin and bandages sent to your home for you to keep
  • No need to worry about the commute, traffic or finding parking
  • You can log in from wherever you are: at home, in the office or anywhere else
  • Receive your certificate within 24 hours of completion

UPDATED: 11 November 2020

As of 29 October 2020, First Aid training at public venues in the Melbourne metropolitan area is open.

For the continued safety of staff and students additional measures are in place:

  • Smaller class sizes capped at 12 students
  • PPE including masks and gloves are available at our classes for students
  • Temperature screening will take place for all people entering our training venues
  • No contact first aid training: this means 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 be directed not to breathe into a manikin at this time.
  • Increased cleaning of our equipment after every class
  • Alcohol based hand sanitiser is available throughout the venue for use upon arrival, during class and departure
  • We discard all bandages, dressings or other class consumables at the end of the class and they are not re-used


Importantly, those who meet the following criteria should not attend any St John Ambulance Training course:

  • Those who are unwell or experiencing any flu-like symptoms
  • Those who have been diagnosed positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • People who have been overseas in the 14 days prior to their course date
  • Those who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days

Those who are diagnosed with a confirmed case of COVID-19 within 14 days after attending their St John training course must advise St John Ambulance Victoria immediately on 1300 360 455

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.
