Acceptable 1st Aid Certs

Just hot off the press

The RYA have finally published the long awaited list of first aid certificates acceptable for Instructor, Commercial Endorsements and Certificates of Competence which is applicable from 1 April 2013. There is also a list of unacceptable certs.

These lists can be found at:

The issue with Doctors and Paramedics has also been dealt with and there is also a reminder that from immediate effect Man Overboard training on all practical courses should include discussion of the dangers of cold water shock for the casualty immediately upon entering the water.

The site above also includes a link to 2 excellent RNLI videos on Cold Shock - always worth a watch.

Maximum Preparation - Maximum Fun
