RYA First Aid Course

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 your RYA First Aid manual.
