Registration

  • This registration option is for those who have not done a first aid course before and therefore require a first aid manual. We need to order these from the RYA.

Registration is closed

The RYA one-day 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, 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. 

The subjects specific to boating include:

  • the recovery position in a confined space
  • CPR, including the drowning protocol
  • cold shock and hypothermia fromimmersion and/or exposure
  • seasickness and dehydration
  • medical assistance or advice by VHF
  • helicopter rescue
Please contact trainingprincipal@elyc.org.uk for any further details
There is an option to pay an extra £10 for a course book if you have not completed the course before or would like a new book.
