Where your course fees go ...
In earlier times, there used to be a component of the total fees paid for a course which was retained by our team to defray our considerable expenses in purchasing equipment, such as defibrillators, to support Scouting and Guiding events. This ranged from $10.00 to $25.00 per course, depending on the level of course receipts. Additionally, $5.00 from each candidate's fees were paid to the Scouting owner of the premises as hall hire. The remainder of the course fees were paid to St John.
Since 1 January 2014, course fees no longer have a component which is retained by our team: all fees go to St John and hall hire. We no longer have any income from conducting First Aid training.
^ Student Rates and Adult Rates
Student Rates are available to school students, Scouts, Guides, Girls Brigade, and Duke of Edinburgh participants attending courses run by community trainers. Our team's trainers, as volunteers, are regarded as "community trainers".
Adult Rates are available to other individuals attending courses run by community trainers, and to Pensioners and University Students in public courses.
First Aid Trainers
All of these courses and all St John Ambulance Australia (NSW) courses up to, but not including Occupational First Aid, are free of charge to First Aid Trainers.
# Provide First Aid Course Fees :
It may seem curious that the course fees for the two-day full Provide First Aid course and the one-day Recertification and e-Learning courses (PR1) are so similar. However the cost of the course is based on the materials used, part of the cost of course development, the cost of issuing the certificates, and a small subsidy towards the cost of St John Ambulance's volunteer services. Scouters teach the courses as volunteers, so there is no labour or other time-based component.
