TRAINING

First aid is emergency help given to an injured or suddenly ill person using readily available materials.

It can be as simple as removing a splinter from a child’s finger and applying a plaster to something more complicated like giving care to many casualties at the scene of a motor vehicle accident.  

It is a simple fact that a practical knowledge of first aid can save lives. Whether it’s a HWSETA or Department of Labour accredited first aid course you need as required by your employer or studies, or you just want to be prepared for emergencies at home or play, St John is able to offer you an innovative training course ensuring you receive hands-on knowledge that will make a difference in an emergency.
