Provide First Aid in a Remote Situation for Ocean Yachting
Provide First Aid in a Remote Situation (previously known as Level 3/Advanced Remote First Aid) is a short course designed to develop the knowledge and skills required to provide life support measures over longer periods before outside medical assistance arrives and to extend practical skills in injury management.
This Provide First Aid in a Remote Situation for Ocean Yachting course was developed in collaboration between the ORCV and The Benchmarque Group and combines Nationally Recognised Training that has been customised with expert marine input from the ORCV into the course delivery and structure. It focuses on First Aid scenarios that may confront offshore yachties. The course is highly interactive, practical and not classroom focused. It provides plenty of opportunity to ask question of the facilitators and practice relevant marine first aid skills as well as interact with other sailors.
Provide First Aid in a Remote Situation is based around preparation for remote situations, basic medical documentation, working in conjunction with medical and emergency services and administration of medicines on advice from authorised medical personnel. Knowledge is applied to yachting specific first aid scenarios and the unique challenges sailors may be presented with when applying first aid while onboard a yacht at sea.
Provide First Aid in a Remote Situation is highly recommended for the extensive practical skills and overall benefit and safety it provides for participants in offshore racing and cruising scenarios. As a pre-requisite for this course, you must hold an Apply First Aid certificate of attainment.
Participants will receive two certificates

Pocket First Aid and Wilderness Medicine covers prevention, planning and survival, and deals with most of the problems encountered in the wilderness ranging from altitude illness to tropical diseases, from accident and emergency response to venomous creatures of land and sea. As well as first aid it also explains how to continue to give care for hours or days after the event. There is a valuable chapter on how to make a diagnosis and a medication chart with the indications, dosage and side effects of the medications mentioned in the text. It is written in plain English, avoiding medical jargon and, despite its comprehensive coverage and 250 pages, still manages to be pocket size.
