RYA first aid certificates?

A member of our sailing club just cancelled their RYA First Aid at Sea course because they got one sent to them on the basis they had recognised shore-side training, having just done the FA Instructors course I am fairly sure this is not legitimately possible. But before going to the RYA I wanted to see what other instructors and coded skippers thought of this?

If the club member had a recognised first aid certificate why get another sent
does not make sense not legitimate sounds abit iffy.

It sounds as if are definitely issues there that have to be looked into in more detail and the RYA will be very glad to have a look at who signed and sent the certificate even if it all turns out to be bona fide.

If they have a first aid certificate from a uk body that qualifys them to equal or higher than the RYA cert why should they need to do another? just because it is RYA?

The RYA first aid course is an eight hour course which includes subjects that are specific to boating such as:
  • the recovery position in a confined space
  • CPR, including the drowning protocol
  • cold shock and hypothermia fromimmersion and/or exposure
  • seasickness and dehydration
  • medical assistance or advice by VHF
  • helicopter rescue


There are other first aid courses that include the above but these tend to be longer.

It doesn't have to be RYA. STCW-95 courses will be acceptable too. I presume there are others?

CR, Do you know what "shore side" quals the person had?

Not sure at the moment, but favourite is emergency first aid at work.

Think the RYA would be intrested and the MCA, big fines from MCA if you get caught braking laws.
