RYA First Aid

Due to government restrictions we are currently not offering any RYA First Aid courses, once this advice is relaxed we plan on resuming, but until we have some indication of when this may be we are not taking any tuition bookings.

The H.S.E recognised RYA First Aid Course runs over one day and offers a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical sessions that are designed to develop ability and practical confidence.

This course is equivalent to the Health and Safety Executive Appointed Person at Work Certificate.

The syllabus includes the following:

• Demonstrate how to turn a casualty into the recovery position
• Detail the treatment for shock
• Apply direct pressure to a wound and control bleeding
