Vital First Aid, established more than 20 years ago, is a dynamic training organisation providing accredited practical training in all facets of first aid and pre-hospital care. With all instructors having extensive real life experience in pre-hospital care as ambulance officers, they make first-aid training fun, real and true to life.

Vital First Aid does not cancel courses unlike many other training providers. We understand that in today's busy world it takes a lot of organisation to fit in a first aid course and there is nothing more frustrating than to have that course cancelled due to lack of participants. You can rest easy knowing that once your confirmed, the course will go ahead!

Vital First Aid is a Recognised Training Organisation 90531 and delivers the new standard for first aid training: HLTAID003 Provide First Aid which replaces the old HLTFA311A Apply First Aid). This is the only WorkCover recognised course for Senior First Aid. Our course is also covered by most major health funds. If you require the workbook to be sent urgently we can send it by express post for a fee of $7 or you can simply download it from our secure website. 

Vital First Aid is also a major supplier of First Aid Kits and Defibrillators. We can also assist you with first aid kit compliance.

Child Care Industry : To reduce the cost for people working in the childcare industry we have incorporated the new childcare specific unit ( HLTAID004 Provide and Emergency Response in an Education and Care Setting ) with our standard first aid course. This removes the requirement to complete a separate Asthma and Anaphylaxis course saving time and money without compromising the quality of knowledge and practical skills.


  • Dr Reddy’s was looking to partner with a First Aid company who deals with training large group of professionals. In 2012, we ran three training events in VIC, NSW & QLD. The feedback we received from our staff and our customers was excellent. You can see Adrian really loves what he does by the effort he makes to keep the participants entertained whilst ensuring they leave knowing how to perform CPR. As someone in the healthcare and fitness industry, I highly recommend Vital First Aid.

  • Hi I am writing to let you know what an amazing job the surf life savers at Avoca did yesterday. The speed with which they rescued the two women from a non patrolled area and commenced cpr was impressive. As a doctor i offered my assistance but it was clear that the team had it under control. Having worked in emergency for ten years i can safely say i have never seen such a professional and well run arrest team with all surf life savers offering both women exceptional care and respect. Sadly one of he women died but team fought for least 45mins to get her back. I visit Avoca regularly and have no hesitation swimming in the surf with this professional team watching. Kind regards Dr Merrin Thanopoulos
