Offshore Medic Training
Essential First Aid training for all cruising yacht captains & crew members.
Our rally partners Marine Medical Solutions are providing this highly recommended marine first aid course for all who venture offshore under power or sail.
The course has been designed specifically to focus on First Aid situations in a marine environment.
Whether you are a cruising yachtie or part of a rally or yacht race, being well prepared is half the battle in preventing your voyage from coming to an abrupt end due to unforeseen circumstances.
Part of that preparation is having good basic medical/first aid training and carrying the best possible medical equipment that you can onboard your vessel.
At Marine Medical Solutions we provide Marine First Aid training and medical kits for cruising and racing sailors.
