Update - Expired First Aid Training Certificates

Expired First Aid Training Certificates Effective September 15, 2020 St. John Ambulance Alberta will no longer honour a grace period for recertification of expired first aid certificates or extended completion period of the blended in-class assessments for certification. Six of our seven St. John Training Centres are now open in the Province. Our Fort McMurray location is currently providing classes in a temporary location due to flood damage to our Training Centre.

 

Resumption of in-class training - Covid-19

St. John Ambulance is pleased to announce our business resumption plan for in-class training. Starting on May 25, 2020, our Edmonton location will be piloting the in-class training in accordance with the policies and guidance from the Province of Alberta. On June 1, we will continue a phased-in approach across our other 6 locations.
