General Public & Young People

At St John Ambulance Cymru, our mission is to make first aid for everyone – anytime, anywhere. In order to achieve this, we aim to train as many members of the public in life saving first aid skills as possible. The profits made from our workplace courses allow us to provide free awareness training in Welsh communities and help us work towards our goal. All training for children is also offered free of charge.

Throughout the year, we run 3 campaigns in conjunction with other organisations to increase public knowledge of valuable lifesaving skills. During these campaigns we have an increased amount of awareness courses on offer, so please check back a few weeks before each campaign begins:

Defibruary - Throughout the month of February, we aim to train as many people as possible in using a defibrillator. 

Child Safety Week - During the first week of June, we reach out to communities to arm them with first aid skills for children and infants. 

Save a Life September - The month of September sees us working within communities in Wales to raise awareness for basic first aid skills. 

Our full list of courses for the general public and young people are below. For any further advice please contact our customer service team Send us an email at communitytraining@sjacymru.org.uk.

If you require professional training, then you will want to consider our Workplace Training, which can also be delivered onsite.
