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 our instructors having extensive real life experience in pre-hospital care as ambulance officers, we 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 having that course cancelled due to a lack of participants. You can rest easy knowing that once you're confirmed, the course will go ahead!

Vital First Aid is a Recognised Training Organisation ( 90531 ) that delivers the new standard for first aid training: HLTAID003 Provide First Aid which is the the only WorkCover recognised course for First Aid.

To ensure that all participants are familiar with first aid concepts, we require completion of our "workbook" prior to attending the first aid course ( does not apply to CPR ). 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. Please be aware that due to Australia Post reducing services there may be a delay in receiving the workbook - we recommend that you select to complete on-line rather than have it sent as a hard copy. 

All certificates now are sent electronically and contain anti-fraud components. This ensures that you receive your certificate quickly as well as having the benefit of easy verification of your qualification.

On-site courses for companies and organisations are easily accommodated. Rather than sending staff off site, often its easier to simply run the course at the workplace. Our trainers can come to you as long as you have a venue suitable for running a course of this nature - ( desks , chairs etc ). GST will be added for courses that are paid for by a 3rd party.

If you have ANY special needs ( eg, language / literacy / numeracy difficulties, physical disabilities etc ) that you think may impact on your ability to complete this training please let us know prior to enrolling.
