apart from as was mentioned earlier most specialist groups ie round the world sailing - expeditions ,diving clubs seem to have a good basic know how regarding first aid o2 admin ect in there training programs and the last time i heard most large ships, trawlers ,.diving standby ships , have to have a near paramedic trained crew member on board . most of the uk has an excellent rescue services if and when needed ,it is after all a first aid course most boaters are looking for i dont think that most recreational boaters around the uk would be up to doing an amputation or a heart and lung transplant at sea .i also think that with the sadly out to get someone for compensation brigade on the increase it may put people off getting better qualifications it seems bad enough at the best of times, as from past experiences in small open boats in a rough sea theres not much that you can do except the very basic of first aid.

5 day Ships captains medical certificate

3 day medical aid or medical care at sea ( Cant remember which it is called)

Cat 1 and 0 carry mega medical kits, drugs and all. most large ships carry all this gear in a hospital.

Both are STCW courses

First aid courses

Hi Mike,
Really out of date I know but I have qualified in the adjuncts, defib, spinal etc that you were talking about. Speak to Dave Whelan (Will) at The Training Centre, Lusty Glaze, Newquay, Cornwall 01637 876631. They run first aid courses from one day appointed to EMT-B (first response) as well as lots of bolt ons. I've been instructing for them on an adhoc basis for a couple of years and the work is quite regular and well paid. They are always looking for locum instructors all over the country if that is what you are after (they may be able to give you advice on how to start your own firm doing that type of thing but I doubt it!)

I know from my own experience that there is a good market for that type of thing but it is fairly specialised and you'd have to pitch the price right. I was instructing O2, defib and spinal management to the Dev&Corn det officers which might be a good start point in your force area. Go for it, and if you need instructors give me a call!
Dave
