St John Offers Free CPR Training for World First Aid Day
New research shows that a worryingly low figure (43.5%) of all Australians have ever completed First Aid training. Only 12% have completed training in the last 12 months.
St John Ambulance Australia believes far more people should be trained, equipped and ready to provide First Aid, so we’re opening up our training centres nationwide to offer free training on World First Aid Day on Saturday 9th September.
On offer will be 30 minute CPR training sessions delivered by professional St John trainers – Australia’s leading First Aid Training provider. This will help achieve St John’s vision of having 90% of victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest receive CPR (at present this figure is only 39% in Victoria).
Details of the Free Training in each state are as follows, please head along on the day to your nearest location:
Where: Level 6, 310 King Street Melbourne
When: 9am-2pm, Saturday 9th September
Details: all participants will also receive a Free First Aid Kit (RRP $22.95)
