Medical First Aid

The two-day Medical First Aid training course teaches you to act quickly and efficiently in the event of accidents and illness on board. It is of vital importance that seafarers on board ships can provide medical first aid to fellow seafarers. In the international STCW Convention there are legal requirements for this. Every officer is required to be in possession of a valid certificate.

The training course is certified by the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT) under institute code NL007.
