Marine First Aid

Last night at Fleet I asked if there was a recommended First Aid course for boaters and it was suggested that I look at BCIT for a course that is part of a larger curriculum but that could be taken separately... a 5 day intensive study.

I looked... I can't find it... I'll look again

Has anyone else taken a first aid course for sailing that could be recommended, including CPR, AED and marine specific topics?

Hi there,

I'm actually investigating this one right now.

1. On Vancouver Island: There is a Basic Marine First Aid course for BCA that is offered on the May 4th/5th weekend. This is probably what you are looking for.
https://www.alertfirstaid.com/courses/first-aid-courses/marine-basic-first-aid-with-c-level-cpr

Lionel is the contact for the course for BC (see the Calendar side panel)

2. Advanced Marine First Aid (AMFA): This is offered through various course conductors: Alert First Aid etc.
I'm taking it through http://www.firstaid.ca/mafa/4558795852 . This was the place that was recommended in one of our fleet courses.

This one is similar to a first responder

3. Marine Medical Care (This is the one I actually want to take but I need the AMFA first).

This one is taught at BCIT at the Marine Campus but registration is through the first aid group. From my understanding it fills up with the cadets.


Note: There is this: https://www.vicmaui.org/offshore-first-aid . But not available this year. I've sent an email inquiry.

Advanced Marine First Aid (AMFA) . --this is not a medical responder one. But I did get to learn how to use a BVM and a lot of other useful information.
