Registration

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 a mix of theory and hands-on practice, designed for the specific demands of providing first aid afloat to people using small craft, or 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 from immersion and/or exposure
  • seasickness and dehydration
  • medical assistance or advice by VHF
  • helicopter rescue


Please contact training@elyc.org.uk for any further details.

Included in the course cost is the RYA First Aid book that will come with your certificate.
