Skippers First Aid Training

Skippers First Aid Training

A 44-hour First Aid Training for Skippers

The Skippers First Aid training is an integral part of the sailors’ training.
The sea has quite a number of dangers, from dehydration, seasickness (fatigue, sickness, and vomiting), various injuries, fractures,
and all the way to drowning, cardiac emergencies, respiratory emergencies, etc. As we all know, we cannot foresee medical emergencies in advance. Therefore, the sailors should be trained in First Aid to provide the necessary response, if need be. As part of the Skippers First Aid training, the trainees will learn about the various emergencies while emphasizing the content relevant for them. They will also perform many exercises, such as CPR, bandaging, splitting, etc. When the time comes, they will be able to identify the type of injury and provide the appropriate needed initial medical treatment. Trainees who met the training requirements will be awarded a First Aid Certificate at the end of the training.
