A conversation on the pier today has left some confusion here.
The guys who trundle to and fro across Lamlash Bay have arranged to renew their first aid certificates; where and with whom is immaterial.
They currently hold RYA PB2+CE tickets (they're not going far!) and they have been told by an approved training provider that the first aid cert. is essential, and for GBPxx he will arrange the course; but another person who should know says this is no longer the case and the First Aid cert. is not required: the RYA website
would seem to agree with this.
Leaving aside the ethics of having someone who can apply a plaster on board or not, would someone on here who really understands care to clarify the point?
(I have no involvement other than as an interested observer; and I will be renewing my First Aid cert. when it expires later this year...)
