First Aid

Our course, delivered over two Wednesday evenings, covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat, whether on inland waters, rivers, estuaries or on cross channel passages.

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:

  • First aid training for vessels working up to area Category 2 under the Maritime and Coastguard Agency Codes of Practice for Small Vessels Operated Commercially;
  • First aid training needed by offshore racers subject to World Sailing's Offshore Special Regulation OSR 6.05.2;the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations, 1981 for the purposes of Emergency First Aid at Work.

  • 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
