Why choose VSLC Training Services?

A Unique Standard

Our training courses follow international best practice, are kept constantly up to date and are delivered by highly trained teachers using professional resources and equipment. Our core lifesaving and first aid qualifications are UK endorsed and VSLC is a member of the IFSTA.

Available nationwide

We operate all across Vietnam – and overseas on request. We can provide training venues, or alternatively we can come to you – wherever you are. Whichever option works best for you.

Tailor Made Solutions

Our private courses are tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients. Our tailored made courses can be combined with our consultancy service, giving our clients a complete package for all of their aquatic and first aid needs.

Highly trained teachers

Our trainers are carefully selected. Our trainers themselves undergo regular training and continuous professional development, and we have a robust quality assurance process in place to ensure the highest standards are always maintained. 

Our Training Philosophy


Fit for Purpose

Training is effective when it truly prepares individuals and teams for the reality of their roles and environments. Our range of qualifications is designed to meet a wide range of needs. In addition to our standard training courses, we also offer custom solutions designed to meet the needs of specific contexts. 


Student engagement is a paramount. Our courses are designed to be as practical as possible, including scenario based training wherever appropriate. Our trainers use a range of teaching methods and resources to keep our students fully engaged with the content of our courses, including videos, group team work, scenarios and plenty of practical sessions.


Evidence Based

Our courses are taught in line with the latest evidence based, best practice guidelines available. Our first aid and resuscitation is taught in line with European Resuscitation Council standards. Our core lifesaving and first aid qualifications are endorsed by the UK’s Swimming Teacher’s Association (STA) . All our qualifications are reviewed annually, ensuring they always reflect current best practice.


 We work with a wide range of organisations all across Vietnam. See what a few of our recent partners have to say!

"At Oxalis Adventures we operate caving and trekking tours. We visit remote areas in the jungle and underground. It is very important for us that our safety team has up to date and professional training in First Aid. We chose The Vietnam Swimming and Lifesaving Company to help us with this. They provided us with a thorough training in basic first aid and also some additional topics related to our area of work. We were very impressed with their staff, and it was great that they could come to us to provide the training. We would happily recommend them!"
