Frequently asked questions

What is an Online Learning Space?

The Online Learning Space is an area on our eLearning Platform that individuals can register to access. It is a resource to help aid your skill retention through short interactive modules, mini courses and activities.

It also includes online modules that must be completed (as part of our blended online training courses) before you attend the second part of the courses in person at one of our training venues.

Do I need anything special to use it?

All you need to use Online Learning Space is an internet connection. Once you’re in, begin learning and refreshing your first aid skills.

My username and password aren't working

The online learning space login details are separate from your St John Ambulance account details. You will need to create an account here.

You can reset your password using this link. Here you can reset your account using your username or email address.

Why does the course completion still say not started, even though I have completed the course?

There’s sometimes a delay in the system updating results, try logging off and logging back on again.

What if my course is relocated, rescheduled, or cancelled by St John?

We make every effort to avoid this happening, but occasionally it is necessary. This is why it is vitally important for us to have your current telephone number and email address, so that we are able to notify you as soon as possible. If the change is not acceptable to you, we will attempt to book you on to a more suitable course date or provide you with a full refund. Cancellations made by the candidate will be subject to our normal Terms & Conditions.

If I can no longer attend a course, can I get a refund?

In accordance with our Terms & Conditions, we only offer a refund if your course is cancelled by St John. Circumstances such as illness, work commitments, or leaving the island are not considered for refunds.

Can I give my place to a friend/colleague?


When do I need to pay for my course?

When will I receive my certificate?

Provided all course fees and any additional charges have been received in full, certificates are issued via email, in PDF format, at the end of the course.

How do I receive my online course completion confirmation?

Your online course completion confirmation will automatically generate once you have completed all the required modules for certain courses. It will appear in your Account/Dashboard; from here it can be downloaded and saved. It will also be emailed to you.

My course completion confirmation is not generating

Make sure you have completed all the required modules/ activities of the course, once a section is completed a green tick will appear next to that module/activity.

My course completion confirmation does not have a date

The courses that generate course completion confirmations are not full official qualifications. Therefore, some of the course completion confirmations generated do not provide a completion date. However, we can track the course completion and can identify our own certificates with unique codes.
