  • understand what to do in case of an accident or medical emergency on board.

You will be assessed throughout the course by direct observation, simulation and role play. Additional time is allocated at the end of the programme for anyone who requires remedial support to achieve competence. Criteria for assessment of competence are included in the course notes.

This course is ideal for those who wish to keep their first aid skills and knowledge up to date, allowing seafarers to remain competent at applying basic life saving techniques and to understand what to do in an emergency situation.
