We’re staying Alive

Make sure that you know what to do in an emergency so that your friends and loved ones will stay alive. The RYA First Aid course will give you the skills you need.

Don’t dismiss the first aid training. It’s hands down one of the most important skills to acquire. Let me explain…

YOU ARE NO LONGER 8 MINUTES FROM AN AMBULANCE WHEN YOU ARE ON A BOAT.

Going afloat is an incredible hobby but it is also classed as an adventurous one. By the very nature of what you are doing, you are remote. This is because it’s hard to access you and anybody who becomes ill. Even if your only 100 metres from the shore. Think about it for a second.

You’re out in the bay. 100 metres from shore and your fishing buddy has a heart attack. You have to call for help using the VHF or mobile, get the boat to shore, hope there is vehicle access for an ambulance and get your chum stable somehow.

There’s no doubt about it. When the sh** hits the fan, you’re the one that needs to get their Captain head on.

Having bought a jet ski I thought it sensible to have some training. So glad I did. I attended the course with a very practical instructor. An hour in the classroom learning some essential bits then the rest of the day on the water. Brilliant and so useful. I now appreciate the harbour rules. I enjoyed the course and learnt so much. Thank you Noel and the team. Les Peaty

Went for the two day Powerboat Level 2 course. The pace was perfect, they got us out on the water within the first few hours and Emily took her time to explain everything. It always felt like we were naturally moving onto the next section rather than working through a curriculum. Really lovely experience.

A great couple of days doing the Powerboat Level 2. Emily was a great instructor and covered everything from boat handling and manoeuvring to navigation and trip plotting. A very informative and worthwhile course.

I have just recently completed two courses at Get Lost powerboat training at Poole.The first being my VHF Radio course,and the second Essential Navigation course.As these courses were only short,one day and two days,there was a lot to take in.Having said that,Noel and his teaching staff were excellent and went above and beyond to make sure you completed these courses.Everything was done in a relaxed way to put you at ease.If there was anything I was unsure about the team took their time to make sure I understood things clearly before moving on.This really helped my confidence and needles to say I passed both courses.This was the second time that I have used Get Lost powerboat training,and if I am wanting to do more courses in the future I will certainly be using them again.Once again a big thank you to you Noel and your team.Kind regards,John Mather.

I just completed my 2 day powerboat training course with Nathan. The course was excellent - very well thought out. I learnt a lot more than I thought I would, both on the practical and navigational skills side. Nathan was an outstanding teacher - a natural. I can see why this company get so many 5 star reviews. I’ll definitely be back to book more courses and I look forward to doing so. I recommend the powerboat level 2 course to anyone looking to get into boating.

Really thorough and well managed course with (very) patient staff who go the extra mile to make sure you really understand each step. Highly recommended.

What makes the RYA first aid course different?

RYA first aid training has an emphasis on problems at sea. As such it fulfils the requirements set out within the Maritime & Coastguard Agency’s Code of Practice for small commercial vessels.

More importantly, you will cover subjects that aren’t usually taught during first aid courses.

These include:

  • The recovery position in a confined space
  • CPR, including the drowning protocol
  • Cold shock and hypothermia from immersion and/or exposure
  • Seasickness and dehydration
  • Medical assistance or advice by VHF
  • Helicopter rescue
