First Aid

Our One-day course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective.  It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat.

In a medical emergency a little first aid knowledge and immediate action can save lives, especially in remote locations. This one-day course is designed to provide a working knowledge of first aid for people using small craft and to support skippers. 

It fulfills the requirements for:

  • professional skippers of small craft working within 60 miles of a safe haven, including Boatmasters;
  • the Senior First Aid certificate needed by offshore racers subject to ISAF’s regulations on first aid training (OSR 4.08.4).

The course is recommended by the MCA and HSE.
