This one-day RYA approved course covers all of the standard First Aid training, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat, whether on inland waters, rivers, estuaries or on cross channel passages. We ask that all those involved with working or volunteering with All-Aboard complete this.
In a medical emergency a little first aid knowledge and immediate action can save lives, especially in remote locations. This course is designed to provide a working knowledge of first aid for people using small craft and to support skippers on bigger boats.
As well as the usual First Aid requirements the course focuses on the boat perspective, including:
