St John Ambulance On-line Training

St John Ambulance offers on-line blended certification. This course allows students to complete their practical training at home and self directed with only one day in-class.

CPR during COVID-19

Should the need arise to perform CPR during the current COVID-19 pandemic on any individual, the guidelines below should be applied. Please keep in mind that each situation will be unique:

1. The first aider should always protect themselves. This means using the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as gloves and a CPR mask with a one-way valve. We cannot stress the importance of PPE enough in every situation that involves CPR.

2. If the first aider does not feel comfortable breathing into the patient​, while using a mask, they are encouraged to perform hands-only CPR.

3. If you are a healthcare provider, follow your local jurisdiction protocols.

It is worth mentioning that COVID-19, while new, is not the only pathogen that a first aider may come across in a first aid situation. Caution should always be exercised when assisting a casualty due to any number of possible pathogens.  The use of PPE should be employed whenever possible while performing CPR in any situation.
