STCW 95 First Aid Courses
RLSS UK Life Support 3
BSAC Diver First Aid
HSE FAW 4 day course if the other elements such as drowning and paediatric protocols and Hypo and Hyperthermia have been covered
RYA First Aid at Sea .(Probably your best bet as we talk about Helicopter transfers and what type of DSC call you would make to cover different types of Medical Emergencies)
As Whiteminman has already stated the Emergency First Aid at Work is NOT recognised by HSE
