TRAIN WITH THE BEST
With over 135 years’ first aid experience in South Australia, St John Ambulance SA delivers a broad range of first aid and related training courses.
We deliver nationally recognised training in partnership with St John Ambulance Australia Limited (RTO 88041), as well as internally, and otherwise accredited and non-accredited training.
Information such as our training terms and conditions and student rights and responsibilities can be viewed in the Participant Handbook.
The aim of this course is to provide the necessary skills and knowledge to provide a first aid response to a range of injuries and illnesses. It is practically focused and provides the essential information required for confidence and competence in delivering basic first aid in a workplace or public setting. This course is appropriate for experienced first aiders and people who complete first aid training regularly.
The CPR course provides the knowledge and skills to manage an unconscious casualty, and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a person who is unconscious and not breathing normally.
This course is designed for people working on live or potentially live electrical switchboards and plant at low voltages. It equips them with the skills to manage the danger and provide first aid in the event of accidental electric shock or electrocution. This course meets one of the training requirements for electricians, as outlined by the Office of the Technical Regulator.
This course provides the knowledge and skills to manage emergency first aid situations, including managing the unconscious casualty, performing CPR, controlling bleeding and managing other life-threatening conditions. It is suitable for individuals wanting to cover the basic skills and knowledge to provide an emergency first aid response.
The 2-day Mental Health First Aid course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health issue or crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves using a practical, evidence-based Action Plan.
This course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals, and is externally accredited through Mental Health First Aid Australia.
Like the one-day course, the aim of this course is to provide the necessary skills and knowledge to provide a first aid response to a range of injuries and illnesses. This option allows more time to cover theory components and practice skills to gain confidence and competence in delivering basic first aid. It is the most suitable option for people who are new to first aid or where English is a second language.
