COVID-19 - St John Ambulance suspends all ambulance driving training

We have suspended all training courses until further notice. You can still register your interest for courses later in the year.

Our ambulance driver training courses 

St John Ambulance has run well-respected, nationally recognised ambulance driver training for our volunteers and ambulance staff for many years. All our trainers are highly-experienced professionals, guaranteeing a well-structured, informative and engaging learning experience. We are now expanding our ambulance driver training beyond our own St John people, to give everyone the opportunity to learn with us.  

We run a wide variety of courses to suit  different requirements. You can find out more and complete an Expression of Interest form by visiting our course pages for CERAD, DERADI, C1, and APCSAD. 

Flexible approach with expert instructors 

To accommodate as many people as possible, we run courses across the country throughout the yearYou can book a place as an individual learner or contact us to find out about group training for NHS Ambulance Trusts, private ambulance and patient transport providers. 

Our training programme structure allows us to be as flexible as possible to fit your needs, preferred dates and locationsWe often have spare spaces available, even at short notice. Simply contact us and we will do our very best to accommodate you.  

For NHS ambulance trusts or private providers, we can work in partnership with your training team to provide you with additional capacity at peak timesAlternatively, wcan  teach smaller numbers of crew or individuals, fitting around their shifts 

Support at every step of the course  

All our trainers are highly skilled specialist instructors, able to adapt their teaching style to meet each learner’s needs. We offer individual, end-to-end support to each learner; this might include extra help with portfolio work, getting the most out of the self-taught Guided Learning Hours, or assistance with arranging placements to practice your newly acquired skills. With us, your success is our success!  

The course was intense but thoroughly enjoyable because of the excellent and engaging teaching style of St John Ambulance’s advanced instructors. The theory exams were less stressful than I expected because of the great theory sessions we had in the classroom. Matt S. - Course participant
