FIRST AID INSTRUCTOR COURSES …. 2013.
Applicants for the one-day RYA FA instructor course must hold the full 3 day First Aid at Work certificate, or an equivalent, as a minimum first aid qualification. Once qualified the FAW or another advanced first aid certificate must be kept in-date to continue instructing. An RYA, or any other one day first aid course, will not be accepted.
Doctors and nurses with recent appropriate acute experience, and paramedics are exempt from the need for a first aid qualification, but attending an RYA First Aid Course before coming on the instructors course is highly recommended. Once retired and no longer practising a first aid certificate will be required after 3 years. All candidates must be aware of current first aid practices shown in the revised edition 9 of the St Johns/St Andrews/Red Cross First Aid Manual (published 2011).
In addition instructors need to appreciate the restrictions of first aid in the marine environment and recent, relevant boating experience is essential, and all applicants:
- must hold an SRC certificate
- must be an RYA instructor in another field, preferably practical.
The RYA Sea Survival course is also highly recommended.
In special cases applications from candidates who are not RYA instructors may be considered, but do not apply until this has been agreed.
