Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). So whilst we are often able to provide support to people who for example do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance, although we may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us on 0844 770 4800* if you need any guidance.


Successful candidates will receive a St John Ambulance certificate which is valid for three years.
