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.



In light of current events and the suspension of training caused by the spread of COVID-19, St. John Ambulance, Alberta Council, with authority from Alberta Labour – OHS, will be making concessions on training certification.

St. John Ambulance Life Saving Award

Risking your life to save another is considered the ultimate act of selflessness. Those who perform such acts defy the instinct for self-preservation and exhibit an inspiring spirit of generosity. St. John believes that these actions deserve to be recognized.

The Order of St. John first instituted a Life Saving Award more than 127 years ago, in 1874. The St. John Life-saving Medal of the Order is awarded to those who, in a conspicuous act of gallantry, have endangered their lives saving or attempting to save a life. It is bestowed upon these courageous individuals by the Grand Prior, His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester. For more information on the Life-saving Medal of the Order, please contact the national office of St. John in Canada.
