St John Ambulance is suspending its schedule of public training courses in Canada effective immediately.  

The reasons for our decision to suspend courses include:
  • Following government advice to prevent spread of COVID-19
  • Our concern for the health and wellbeing of our trainers, staff  and customers

  • ​For those with current bookings that need to be postponed these can be transferred to courses after June 1st, 2020 and all transfer charges will be waived.

  • We anticipate a spike in demand for training once the COVID-19 crisis has diminished. To ensure you get the training you need when you need it, customers are encouraged to transfer now to dates after June 1, 2020.

  • Those wishing to cancel and request a refund can do so and our existing cancellation charges will be waived until further notice. Please be aware that refunds might take longer than usual.

  • To make a transfer or cancel an existing booking please contact your local St. John Ambulance branch.

Does St. John Ambulance Canada offer online training?

  • Yes! We have an extensive catalogue of courses for you to choose from. ​

What about expiration of current training certificates and requalification courses?

Across Canada, each province has its own legislation regarding recertification. Most provinces are implementing a 90-day extension for renewals at this time. Please contact your local St. John Ambulance branch to confirm​

If further extensions are necessary, we will post the details on our website. 

Please continue to refer to the St John Ambulance website for the latest information regarding certificate validity during this period.
