Run by experienced on-water instructors the course focuses on the key skills needed to deal with issues when you are afloat. This course can be offered across the Algarve if required but the base is in Vilamoura at the very heart of the Algarve and boasting the award winning Vilamoura Marina. 

As the skipper of a vessel you have a responsibility to care for your crew and passengers.

The one day RYA First Aid course is run by experienced RYA instructors with a good appreciation of medical care afloat and develops the confidence and ability to perform basic first aid when afloat – an essential course for everyone and highly recommended for all skippers and crew.

There is no minimum age limit but realistically 12 is probably a sensible minimum age given the physical aspects of undertaking CPR.

Prior Experience

None required.  The course is obviously aimed at those that go afloat but equally suits anyone interested in a one day first aid course.


The Course Duration is 1 day from 9am to 5pm.

This course is designed to provide a working knowledge of first aid for all those who go afloat, on inland waters or up to 60 miles offshore. The syllabus is based on the recommendations of the Health and Safety Executive and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. The certificate fulfils the requirements of the MCA Code of Practice for the skippers of small commercial vessels up to category 2 and for all RYA practical instructors.

We do have courses running monthly and are also available to arrange tailored schedules for your personal needs. In general the courses need a minimum of 4 people to allow us to operate them. Please contact us for availability and scheduling advice.
