St John believes everybody needs to fit first aid education into their lives, so we’ve created online learning experiences that let you train in your own time.

By blending online or learning with in-class learning, students find it easier to fit first aid training into their calendar. Online learning can be done at work or at home, at a time that’s convenient. It’s followed by an in-class practical and assessment session, so students’ knowledge and skills are tested before they receive a first aid certificate.

St John is confident that the online first aid education components we’ve created are a time-efficient way for people to learn.

St John is confident that the online first aid education components we’ve created are a time-efficient way for people to learn.

Right now we can offer:

  • Online First Aid Refresher, a blended course that allows students to complete part of their first aid revalidation online, then join an in-class session for an afternoon to practice their learning.
  • Everyday Hero, a free online first aid test and education experience that helps people to assess their first aid knowledge and learn the basics of emergency response. There are three first aid learning scenarios – sudden illness in the workplace, barbecue burns and roadside accident. 

Technology requirements
St John first aid online learning requires a computer with broadband internet access and the latest version of Adobe Flash-player. If students have an older version of Flash, they will be prompted to update when they first access the online programme. The programme uses intensive graphics, so computers will need to perform well with interactive multimedia.
