The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) conducted a routine audit of St John’s First Aid training program in late 2020, and has identified some areas for improvement in its assessment processes.
St John Ambulance Australia CEO, Len Fiori assured the community that St John is working with ASQA to ensure these areas for improvement are addressed.
"St John is a charity that supports Australians through emergencies, disasters and sickness. Our services include the provision of First Aid training to help create safer communities.
The First Aid training we provide is of the highest standard, and all St John First Aid certificates continue to be valid."
St John Western Australia operates as a separate Registered Training Organisation and was not included in the ASQA audit.
