Your needs

Ensuring we meet your individual needs:

We are passionate to ensure your individual learning needs are met to ensure that you achieve the outcomes from the course that you need,  and also so you have a good overall experience with Vital First Aid.

Language Literacy & Numeracy Self-Assessment form is available to view here, if you do not think you would be able to successfully complete this, please let us know as soon as possible. You may be requested to complete this prior to course commencement.

If you know that you will have LLN issues that may impact the successful completion of the course it is important not to ignore this, or even attempt to find another training organisation that "doesn't care" if you have LLN issues. It is important for you to address any LLN issues - we recommend completing a LLN course with either TAFE or contact the READING WRITING Hotline 1300 655506. 


Please let us know about any other type of disability or special needs you may have as soon as possible to enable us to provide the best support for you. 

Specific Course requirements

Each unit of competence that we deliver has specific requirements including assessment needs and even physical requirements. All students should be sure that they review these details before they attempt a course. Please follow this link
