St John First Aid Age Requirements

All First Aid Trainers working for St John WA have a valid Working with Children Check.

St John WA follows the recommendations from the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC), which identifies potential stress on young students understanding the consequences of performing CPR. Therefore, the following age limits have been set for First Aid training:

Ages 14 -15 years can enrol as a student into a course and attend with either parental or appropriate adult supervision. Adult supervision means the child / youth is participating and the adult attending is only supervision, not participating. If appropriate supervision is not provided, the student will be denied entry to the class.

Students who are 16 -17 years can attend a course with written parental consent. If written consent is not provided to the trainer on the day, the student will be denied entry to the class.

18 years and above are considered as an adult.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your USI is your individual education number for life. It also gives you an online record of your vocational education and training (VET) undertaken in Australia. 

If you’re at university, TAFE or doing other nationally recognised training, you need a USI. Without one, you can’t get Commonwealth financial assistance or your qualification or statement of attainment.
