Please Note: We are not able to offer this course at Miramar Sailing School, but can arrange for it to be taken as a one day course as an individual module within the STCW 10 at our associate MCA Training Centre in Antigua. These courses are held regularly.
First Aid is a pre-requisite for any RYA/MCA Yachtmaster qualification.
The RYA/MCA do not accept any First Aid Certificate. Please see here for a list of Unacceptable certificates.
This course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat, whether on inland waters, rivers, and estuaries, or on cross channel passages.
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 fulfills the requirements for:
- Skippers of small craft working within 60 miles of a safe haven, including Boatmasters.
- Senior First Aid certificate needed by offshore racers subject to ISAF’s regulations on first aid training (OSR 4.08.4)
The course is recommended by the MCA and HSE.
