RYA First Aid Course


In a medical emergency a little first aid knowledge and immediate action can save lives, especially in remote locations and out at sea.

This one day course is designed to provide a working knowledge of first aid for people using small craft and to support skippers of yachts and motor vessels. It fulfils the requirements for skippers of small craft working within 60 miles of a safe haven. The course is MCA and HSE approved.

There is no pre-course experience required, so the course is perfect for beginners or experience skippers alike, who are looking to understand the basics of first aid within a marine environment. This course is also an RYA requirement for those taking Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster Offshore exams. At the end of the course you will qualify for the RYA Small Craft First Aid Certificate which is valid for 3 years from time of issue.

The course costs £90 per person on one of our scheduled courses, or alternatively one-to-one tuiton is available (POA).
