About our free online first aid refresher course

During these unprecedented times we at St John Ambulance aim to do everything we can to support our training customers, our NHS and our own people.

We know that first aid skills remain important and necessary, perhaps even more so in the light of the COVID-19 outbreak. We want to make sure nobody feels unprepared to provide first aid help when needed, so we're giving free access to our online Annual refresher course. 

The course topics include:

  • Chest pains
  • Choking
  • Severe bleeding
  • Recovery position
  • Basic life support & AED (CPR)
