The first aid certificate is valid for 3 years and Instructors must hold a valid first aid certificate to teach
When you are out on the water accidents can happen. You may find that you need to help someone until professional help can reach you. In such an emergency first aid knowledge can save lives. This course is just as relevant for not only those involved with the first aid on the water, but also for those everyday situations that may occur.
This course covers all basic injuries and illnesses such as, headaches, sunburn, cuts, grazes, and sprains, progressing to learn how to deal with emergency situations that you could find out at sea, concentrating on resuscitation (CPR). You will also learn about first aid care for man overboard victims, including dealing with shock, hypothermia, unconsciousness and head injuries. This is an extremely worthwhile course, a must for every sailor.
