First Aid Course for Club Members


The SBSC are offering members the opportunity to gain an accredited first aid and resuscitation qualification. This course will consist of two x three hour sessions held over two evenings. The course will include the use of the clubs resuscitation equipment and on-water trauma kits.

As the course co-ordinator is donating their time, we are able to offer the course at cost (accreditation fee + face shields), so don’t miss a great opportunity to gain or update your first aid qualification at a reduced rate.

The course will be offered to all club members, however in the first instance we are encouraging all club instructors, coaches and rescue boat crews to attend. If the course is oversubscribed, consideration will be given to running a second course.

These qualifications are also well regarded in many workplaces.
