Assessment

Previously, students who attended our first aid courses were required to pass a final practical assessment. This has been replaced with continuous observation by the trainer and written assessments.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). So whilst we are often able to provide support to people who for example do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance, although we may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.

Certification

Successful candidates receive a St John Ambulance certificate, valid for three years.

Northern Ireland

First aid at work and Emergency first aid at work courses delivered in Northern Ireland are assessed using a final assessment of three practical scenarios. More information is provided in your joining instructions.
