This one day course covers emergency resuscitation and basic First Aid with an emphasis on doing it afloat. It is the minimum First Aid qualification required by RYA Dinghy, Powerboat and Windsurf Instructors and Racing Coaches, and commercial Skippers.
The RYA First Aid Course is unique in First Aid terms, as it is aimed at water sports enthusiasts and takes a realistic look at the levels of First Aid that can be performed in a yacht, powerboat or dinghy and is taught by instructors who have experience of operating these sorts of environments where the ambulance is not just ten minutes away.
This principles learnt on this course aren’t of course just limited to life afloat, they can be applied in any sort of emergency situation whether it’s at home, work or on holiday
