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.

For any enquiries, please call (08) 9334 1233, from 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. Alternatively you can email firstaid@stjohnwa.com.au

We appreciate your patience at this time.

Requirements

The HLTAID003 Provide first aid Unit of Competency standard requires a level of physical ability to meet the evidence requirements for assessment. These standards relate to the level of performance required to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life.

Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements.

As St John WA RTO is not CRICOS registered, this course is not available to international students (or dependants) in Australia on an International Student Visa. If this applies to you, please call the St John WA Contact Centre 08 9334 1233 to discuss available options.
