Those undertaking this training must have completed and been issued with a certificate covering Medical Care on Board Ship (Section A-VI/4-2 of STCW).

A basic level of fitness is required to complete the practical elements of the course. There is no pre-learning required but a good knowledge of the current arrangements on your ship would be advantageous.

Course Overview:

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.

The course will include group discussions, trainer led presentations and a majority of hands on practical exercises and scenarios using industry specific and general first aid equipment.

Delegates will be assessed throughout the course with a short assessment exercise upon completion.

Trainer to delegate ratio of 1:12 throughout.

The STCW requirement for refresher training at 5-yearly intervals must be met or sufficient onboard evidence must be provided.

Upon completion of the course you will be presented with the original certificate.
