Volunteering with St John is a commitment, but one which is immensely rewarding. In return for the time you invest in us and in your community, we offer you NZQA recognised training from the leading provider of pre-hospital emergency care in the country!
St John will provide successful volunteers with training to First Responder level; all volunteers do have the opportunity to later apply to progress toward gaining their National Diploma in Ambulance.
First Responders are trained and equipped to the same high standard as frontline ambulance officers, but with more flexibility around hours.
