RYA First Aid Course   iCal entry for this event

The RYA one-day course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat in dinghies, yachts, windsurfers, canoes or powerboats and on inland waters or the sea.

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 fulfils the requirements for:

  • RYA instructors
  • RYA YAchtmasters
  • 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.

 

The subjects specific to boating include: the recovery position in a confined space CPR, including the drowning protocol cold shock and hypothermia from immersion and/or exposure seasickness and dehydration medical assistance or advice by VHF helicopter rescue.

There is the option at the end of the course to receive instruction on the Cat C medical pack.

Unless you are taking the course simply to meet the requirements for a club instructor, you will need an up to date copy of the First Aid Handbook which we can supply.

The course fee includes lunch.
