MCA STCW '95 Medical First Aid
To give Seafarers who are designated to provide Medical First Aid on board ship the required training. In practical terms this is an advanced First Aid Course for leisure and commercial sailors and motor boaters venturing offshore. It is also required on code of practice vessels operating up to 150 NM from a safe haven. Ideal for Commercial Yachtmaster Offshore Skippers as the one day courses only qualify them to operate up to 60NM from a Safe haven.
This course is popular with blue water sailors, Ocean yachtsmen and those planning on spending substantial time at sea away from the support network of the UK and European authorities.
This certificate is required if you want to go onto the STCW’95 Medical Care On Board Ship Course (often referred to as Ship Captain's Medical). We generally run the two back to back.
Three Days 0930 to 1800
In order to be awarded the STCW ’95 Certificate you must be able to prove six months sea time. Many sailors wish to take this course for their own peace of mind, despite not meeting the sea time criteria. In this instance, we still issue a certificate, it just excludes the STCW’95 endorsement.
This course covers practical First Aid at Sea, use of category B Medical Supplies and caring for patients who may be with you for some time. It includes:
- Examination of a casualty or patient
- Basic life support
