1 hour virtual sessions.
St John WA provides free first aid training at schools and early childhood centres in Western Australia. Bringing VR into our free First Aid Focus program means students get the opportunity to experience first aid in a safe and virtual world.
Students get the chance to interact with virtual patients and learn how to provide assistance and call for help. This is an exciting new addition to our First Aid Focus program, generously made possible by St John Giving.

Health and Safety Warnings
Pre-Existing Medical Conditions
Like other products that produce visual effects (including light flashes), the product may trigger epileptic seizures, seizures, fainting, or severe dizziness even in people who have no history of these conditions. If you have a previous history of epilepsy or seizures, loss of awareness, or other symptoms linked to an epileptic condition, consult your doctor before using the product. To reduce the likelihood of a seizure do not use the product if you are tired or need sleep.
Interference with Medical Devices
The headset and controller(s) may contain magnets or components emitting radio waves, which could affect the operation of nearby electronics, including cardiac pacemakers, hearing aids, and defibrillators. If you have a pacemaker or other implanted device consult with your doctor before using the headset or controller(s). Maintain a safe distance between the headset and controller(s) and your medical devices. Stop using the headset or controller(s) if you observe a persistent interference with your medical device.
Some of the content may be a trigger to participants. Once booking form is received a detailed handout will be sent through detailing what the students will experience. If there is anything in these that may trigger a reaction please advise the VR trainer so they can be aware, monitor or advise the student would prefer not to participate.
