This is an intensive course that requires a certain amount of self-study in the evenings. Having an up to date First Aid knowledge is essential and a good working knowledge of the Ships Captains Medical Guide and the M1768 Ships Medical Stores List would be helpful.
The aim of the course is to provide Masters and other persons designated to take charge of medical care on UK or EU flag vessels who are required to undertake updated training in Proficiency in Medical Care on Board Ship every 5 years, the training set out in Table A-VI/4-2.
There will be a particular focus on:
- Updating the learner on changes in resuscitation and bleeds management
- Refreshing the learner’s knowledge on the medication and equipment on the M1768 Ships Medical Stores list.
- Fine tuning the skills required to carry out certain medical procedures.
- The course does require physical work that is carried out on the floor so anyone with injuries that prevent them from doing that will be unable to complete the course and will have to re book once they are fit and well.
If you or your company require this course on another date and have a minimum of 3 delegates, please contact the shortcourses team to arrange a suitable date.
