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
