First Aid: Yes or no?

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...)

I spoke to the RYA a while back and they said you needed it, went on their site and it said you didn't.
I'd email the RYA and await the response, least you have a name and proof if out happens.

First Aid

FA is not required to get the CE but someone on board still needs to hold it.

Yawned my way through MGN 280 last night* - the relevant section is 2.8 in Annex 3 rather than the main body of the text. Thanks again folks.



* Not really - Control+F is my friend

As Doug has said, FA may not be required by the Skipper in this case however somebody on board must hold a relevant and valid FA cert.

Whilst the RYA have alot of good resources, the MCA are the government body for the Marine Industry in the UK and i would suggest consulting M notice 280 as suggested or contacting the MCA office in Southampton and speaking to the rep / advisor for the SCV code of practice.

The RYA first aid is more than sufficient by the sound of things however the certification needed may depend on the categorisation of water, coding of vessel and also the flag state.

Hopefully this helps,

if you have any further questions then please feel free to drop us an email.
