In fact, St Johns charge for all courses from first aid up to EMT. Plus charges for uniform and so on.

Scabby feckers. I paid naught for my uniform apart from the high-vis. Didn't pay anything for the CFR/EFR/EMT either.

Order of Malta do charge for a first aid course, as does Irish Red Cross, as does St.John Ambulance.

Civil Defense don't as they are state funded.

Are you talking about a public FA course? Or a members course?

OMAC do charge for public FA courses. On a unit by unit bases depending how much. Can't speak for my own as we don't do them.

Do OMAC / Red Cross expect members to buy their own first aid kits for use on duty?

In the main for OMAC no they aren't expected to buy their own stock or kit bags.

Though with that said alot buy their own gear like myself I find a Statpack easier to carry when your walking / standing for a few hours. Statpack bags obviously aren't standard issue
