Delivered from a boating perspective and covering the usual first aid subjects, this course is aimed at anyone who goes boating, whether on inland waters, dams, rivers, estuaries or on a coastal passage. This is a course based on 'save a life' and basic first aid procedures, recommended for all crew who do not have time to attend a 2 day course, and sail less than 3 hours from assistance or under 30 nautical miles from shore. This course is ideal for people using small vessels such as runabouts, small cruisers, jetskis, support Skippers and racing crew subject to World Sailing (formerly ISAF) regulations on first aid training (OSR 4.08.4).
