Three Cross Award: Children 9-13 years

Based on recent directives issued by the Government regarding the closure of educational institutions, St John Training is temporarily suspending all training courses until further notice.

We appeal to the general public to follow the guidance issued by the Health Authorities. We must work together to safeguard the health of our community. In the meantime we invite you to visit St John Malta COVID-19 webpage.


The Three Cross Award scheme is designed to teach First Aid to children in schools and youth organisations

Learning First Aid is a vital part of everyone’s education and this programme can be conducted for young people between the ages of 9 to 13 years old.  It is an excellent step towards helping to save lives.  The Three Cross Award  programme is taught with a combination of video, theory and practical sessions.  The course is broken down in three parts: One Cross, Two Cross and Three Cross.  It has been designed to be as flexible as possible.  The time taken to complete the course will depend upon the size and duration of each session.

A person who has a valid St John Ambulance First Aid certificate can teach the course with the assistance of our volunteers. St John Ambulance Trainers will then conduct the assessment.

Utilising the Three Cross Award is not only worthwhile; it is great fun and virtually every young person can achieve success.  In addition, we have special certificates for organisations to commemorate the achievement of 50+ students through the One Cross Award and 150+ students through the Three Cross Award.

Scouts and Guides can wear badges on their uniform.  The wearing of these badges has been approved by both Associations.

Fee is €10 per child. This fee includes certificate, badge and face shield. Proceeds from our training courses support services provided by St John Malta for the community.
