St John Launches Innovative First Aid e-Learning

The Order of St John in South Africa is transforming the First Aid training sector by introducing a world-first, international gold standard First Aid e-learning course.
The innovative 18-hour first aid blended learning course combines the theoretical component of First Aid Level 1; with a classroom-based practical hosted at St John Training Centres across South Africa or at clients’ premises for groups of eight or more.
In South Africa, the healthcare industry requires practitioners to keep up with their training and certifications and continuous professional development (CPD) points.
Global trends suggest a move away from classroom-based training to a blended approach which typically combines an online component with personal face to face interaction.
Says Ruth Kolevsohn, Training Director for St John South Africa: “Practical knowledge of First Aid can save lives. Whether it’s an HWSETA, Department of Employment and Labour accredited First Aid course as required by employers to comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (Act 85 of 1993); or if an individual wants to be prepared for emergencies at home or play, St John’s innovative First Aid e-learning training course will provide learners with hands-on knowledge that will make a difference in an emergency.”
The e-learning covers the minimum standards and theoretical requirements for the Department of Employment and Labour Document C accreditation. On completion of the theory, the learner will have the opportunity to book an appointment at one of the St John Training Centres for the practical assessment.
St John South Africa offers First Aid and Lifesaving skills training, eye care, ambulance services, medical supplies and facilitates community initiatives. St John, who has been active in South Africa for the past 130 years, recognised that e-learning is vitally important to the transformation of the healthcare sector.
St John is offering the first aid e-learning course at a special launch price of R650-00 (including vat) for the theory and practical. This is a limited offer that is valid until 31 December 2020.
