RYA First Aid

Due to COVID 19 there's a short online up-date available which extends your existing RYA First Aid Certificate by a further year. Follow this link for more information and to book your place on the next course  First Aid Update

This 1-day first aid course is particularly suitable for people who go boating. It provides lots of opportunity for hands-on experience of CPR with our 'Resusci Anne' dummies. Knowing how to deal with cold water shock and hypothermia are also very important when you go boating in our UK waters. Do you know what to do if one of your crew falls overboard? Despite the serious nature of first aid, John aims to make the day a relaxed and enjoyable one for participants.

The course includes a certificate and the RYA First Aid manual.
