I have taken first aid courses yearly for 6 years at St John Ambulance. My most recent instructor was Tessa: she was fantastic! I will continue to go to there in the future for my yearly recertification.

Kevan H

I came across St John Ambulance at the Outdoor and Adventure Travel Show and was reminded that it's about time I get recertified!!! 6 years ago I took the training with St Johns and a lot has changed since then. Chris was an amazing instructor! Was very happy with the training 😀
