Induction Course (Dublin)

Volunteer Induction Course (Dublin)

Induction training ensures all our volunteers receive the same level of training when joining and are introduced to the organisation in the same way. This three day course is run over weekends and is designed to provide new volunteers with the necessary knowledge and skills to become volunteer members of St. John Ambulance. This course equips new volunteers with basic first aid skills enabling you to provide first aid treatment and care to members of the public at local and national events. This course also provides new volunteers with training in hand hygiene, managing clinical waste and other practical skills which will help you to settle into your new role as a St. John Ambulance Volunteer. This course is run at our premises in Dublin.
