First Aid Training
First Aid Training suspended during COVID-19 pandemic
St John WA has made the difficult decision to suspend all training from 23rd March 2020 until further notice, following recommendations from the Australian Resuscitation council.
Currently enrolled students will receive a training credit which can be used within 12 months after training resumes, we will notify students by email when new classes are available.
We appreciate your support in St John making this decision to protect the health and safety of the members of our community. We look forward to resuming training people in life-saving skills as soon as it is safe to do so.
We appreciate your patience at this time.
