Apply First Aid
Apply First Aid (previously Senior or Level 2 First Aid) is a short course designed to develop the knowledge and skills required to provide life support measures in an emergency.
This Apply First Aid with a Yachting Focus 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 focussed. 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.
Apply First Aid is based around the competencies of performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), poisoning, musculoskeletal injuries, managing shock, hemorrhage and envenomation. It includes emergency Basic Life Support and CPR. Knowledge is applied to yachting specific, first aid scenarios and the unique challenges sailors may be presented with when applying first aid while on board a yacht at sea.
The qualification must be held by at least two crew members undertaking a Category One ocean race and by one crew member undertaking a Category Two event. All ocean or longer offshore races are at least Cat2 and a good many cruising sailors also undertake this course for the overall benefit and safety it provides.
