When it comes to selecting a training provider for your first aid courses, we are a great choice. In the UK, St John Ambulance is one of the voluntary aid societies (VAS) who are recognised by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) as standard setters for first aid training in accordance with the Health and Safety (First Aid) regulations 1981. This distinction means that unlike other training providers, we don't require external accreditation through an Awarding Organisation. All courses come with a nationally-recnognised first aid certification

Explore our full suite of first aid courses to meet your specific needs. As well as courses relating to adult first aid, we also offer a number of paediatric first aid courses. Alongside qualified workplace first aider training, we also offer first aid courses designed to give as many employees as possible knowledge of the lifesaving skill to help in a life or death emergency. On successful completion of one of our first aid training courses a person will receive a first aid certification valid for 3 years.
