AMSEA is now providing an 8.5 hour Mariner's CPR/First Aid course that meets USCG regulatory requirements. Candidates completing the course receive a certification card that is valid for two years.
This course differs significantly from the typical urban-based courses. It is geared toward assessing and treating patients in the prolonged care, delayed evacuation, hazardous settings often encountered for those working at sea.
The course utilizes a hands-on, scenario based teaching approach with an emphasis on improvised medical gear that can commonly be found onboard a vessel. In the end, students will be able to better assess what is serious and what's not serious in regards to their patient and to further identify those patients that require an urgent evacuation and those that do not.
