The RYA One day First Aid course is the default first aid training required for those holding any RYA instructor qualifications or commercial endorsements. This course is specifically designed for the demands of providing first aid afloat. It is accepted by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) for use on board commercial vessels and by World Sailing for compliance with the Offshore Special Regulations, and covers the requirements of the Health and Safety regulations for the purposes of emergency first aid at work training.
Our first aid courses are delivered by Caroline Langdon. She has real hands on experience of First Aid in many years working in Mountain Rescue and the Coastguard.
We also work with our friends at Tillycroy Support Services, delivering a variety of nationally recognised and SQA accredited First Aid courses, through ITC First. We can deliver the one day Emergency Fist Aid at Work (EFAW), three day first Aid at Work (FAW) and two day Outdoor First Aid (OFA) courses. The EFAW can also be upgraded with the forestry operations module, which covers the requirements for forestry operations.
We don’t necessarily advertise all our dates as many courses are bespoke for commercial organisations throughout the West Coast of Scotland. If there isn’t a date on here to suit you then please get in contact, and we will try and find something to suit you.
If you have a group wanting a course then we are very flexible to be able to meet your requirements and could deliver these courses at your premises. If you are interested in a more specific course such as Defibrillator training then we can design a course that meets you needs, so please get in contact.
