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 is 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

- cold shock and hypothermia from immersion and/or exposure
- seasickness and dehydration
- medical assistance or advice by VHF
