HC Deb 20 February 1908 vol 184 c981

To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he can state what is the minimum respective curricula requisite for obtaining a master's or mate's first-aid certificate under St. John and St. Andrew Ambulance.

(Answered by Mr. Kearley.) In order to qualify for examination for the certificates of proficiency in first aid granted by the St. John Ambulance Association a candidate must attend at least four of a course of five lectures, each of two hours duration. In the case of the St. Andrew Ambulance Association the candidate must attend at least eight out of a course of twelve lectures of one hour and a half's duration. The syllabus of the lectures under the two associations covers practically the same ground.
