Aquatic First Aid Level 1 (8hr)
The Aquatic First Aid courses are run through the BCU Lifeguards. These courses are aimed at anyone who works around water. The award can be over one or two days and is recognised as the First Aid pre-requisite for British Canoeing paddle-sport coaching awards.
This one day course covers CPR and basic life support, recovery position, and management of illness and injury. The aim of the award is to provide a basic level of knowledge and skill to render First Aid in a range of emergency situations within a reasonable distance of medical assistance. As well as to provide British Canoeing coaches with an appropriate basic First Aid award.
Bespoke courses are available on request.
