RYA First Aid
In a medical emergency, a little First Aid knowledge can save lives, especially when you are in a remote location. This course will provide you with a basic knowledge of First Aid and is aimed at people who will be using small craft at sea. The course is equally suitable for leisure sailors and motor boaters and fulfills the requirements for professional skippers of small craft working up to 60 miles from a safe haven. The RYA First Aid course is recognised by the MCA and HSE, and satisfies the requirements of RYA instructors and holders of RYA/MCA certificates of competence.
1 day: 0930 to 1700.
First Aid and resuscitation techniques for yachtsmen, including knowledge of the treatment for hypothermia. The RYA First Aid Course is unique in First Aid terms, as it is aimed at water sports enthusiasts and takes a realistic look at the levels of First Aid that can be performed in a yacht, powerboat or dinghy. Our instructors fully appreciate the difference between conventional First Aid and RYA First Aid (where the ambulance may not be just ten minutes away). The certificate is valid for three years.
