Welcome to The Vital Link!

VitalLogo jpegFormed in 1992, The Vital Link is a Training Partner of the Canadian Red Cross Society.

Since then we have developed ongoing relationships to deliver training to a variety of agencies. These agencies include major colleges,  universities, health organizations, and provincial and regional social agencies. We also maintain numerous contracts with both corporate and small businesses. The Vital Link and its services are highly sought after within the day care and preschool networks and we train more professionals in this field than any other Training Provider.

Classes are small to ensure the best instruction and hands on training, averaging 10-18 students per class.  Each student will be issued a Red Cross manual and have their own manikin for hands on work.

Since 1992, The Vital Link has delivered over 3,000 courses, taught well over 38,000 students, and these numbers are growing every year! The Vital Link can customize courses to meet your needs, at your home or workplace.
