COVID 19 Update:


We are running very limited number of courses at our Gosford venue, all other venues are closed. 

Some courses may be cancelled at short notice but we will always notify you via email or SMS and your fees will always be safe. 

Special Alert re Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV )

Our standing request for unwell students : If you are unwell with any type of “cold or flu” we will NOT ALLOW YOU TO ENTER THE COURSE. 

Anyone who has travelled overseas in the last 14 days, and/or anyone self-isolating or who has been in close contact with a person who is suspected or confirmed as having COVID-19, must not attend a course with us as per the current Health Dept guidelines.

Travelling to a course is permitted in NSW under the new guidelines (educational reasons) 


Vital First Aid is a dynamic Registered Training Organisation specialising in providing accredited practical training in all facets of first aid and pre-hospital care. 

In our opinion the only experts in first aid training are those that do it professionally – emergency service workers including paramedics, police and fire fighters. All our instructors have extensive real life experience in pre-hospital care and endeavour to make first aid training fun, real and true to life.

Vital First Aid does not cancel courses due to low numbers, 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! 

The statement above, during this current uncertainty, is not going to always be the case. We have made the decision to leave the statement on our website rather than hide it though. Normally we would never cancel a course but at the moment we may have to due to the ever changing government requirements. Any fees paid though are your fees and will be refunded or transferred to another course date if we have to postpone an event.

Vital First Aid is a Recognised Training Organisation (90531)  and delivers the HLTAID003 Provide First Aid which is the the only SafeWork recognised course for First Aid.
