Medical First Aid

Target group

The medical first aid on board and medical care on board training courses are being introduced for all types of ships in the merchant, fisheries and sailing ship sectors. The captain and the persons responsible for medical care on board must be in the possession of both certificates (Medical First Aid and Medical Care). In a number of cases a medical first aid on board certificate will be sufficient, for example on ships navigating near the Dutch coast in a navigation area extending to the Dutch territorial sea and the connecting zone of the Kingdom of the Netherlands bordering the Dutch territorial sea. This is because onshore support can be available.

Prior education
