Elementary First Aid (STCW A-VI/1-3)
The Elementary First Aid course is intended for everyone who intends to work at sea irrespective of his/her future task. The aim of the course is to provide the trainees with basic skills and knowledge so they can give first aid in case of an illness or accident onboard. Special attention is also paid to the promotion of the trainees’ own health and to the prevention of accidents.
The Elementary First Aid course consists of both theory and practical exercises. The course deals with the general first aid principles with the emphasis on vessels as operational environments. In addition, the trainees learn the basics of lifesaving first aid as well as the further first aid measures to be taken in connection with acute cases of illness or accidents.
