As part of my Yachtmaster Ocean, I am doing my RYA recognised First Aid course. It’s all booked up for next weekend and it’s another one of the lists of things to do in
What does it cover
This marine-based first aid course is suitable for those who may need to administer first aid in a watersports & boating environment. The course includes the latest first aid manual.
You should also understand the treatments for cold shock and hypothermia, and be aware of the general treatment for breathing difficulties, anaphylaxis, hyperthermia, chest pain, seasickness, diabetic emergency, fractures, seizures and burns.
By the end of the course you should be able to perform CPR, control bleeding, recognise and treat shock and put people in the recovery position.
