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.

I had some one to one tuition on my boat which is a single engine shaft drive as l was stuggling to manoeuvre the boat in tight spaces and parking etc. Noel met me at the boat and proceeded to teach me some nice little tricks that l just need to practice more.(learned so much in the 1st hour)😁 If anyone is needing some extra tuition in a similar situation l can highly recommend Noel from Get Lost Powerboat Training.

I have now completed my Powerboat Level 2 course, VHF Radio course, and Essential Navigation. I am so glad that I booked these courses with Get Lost Powerboat training, I cannot fault one single thing about this company and what they provide. I had the best fun on these courses, whilst learning so much. I now feel completely confident plotting routes, and being at sea. Noel and his team at Get Lost Powerboat training are professional, explain things so clearly, make the courses fun, and above all ensure you understand and feel confident every step of the way. If you’re looking for someone to provide these courses, look no further, they are ace.

Thank you so much for a very informative and enjoyable powerboat level 2 course, I cannot recommend Get Lost Powerboat Training enough. Included with this course was a free vhf marine radio course, which also exceeded expectations. Don’t hesitate to book with this outstanding company! Extremely pleased with both courses I have attended so far. I have now booked the 2 day essential navigation course too, which I am really looking forward to.

Completed my level 2 powerboat license here and enjoyed every aspect of it. Noel was a very experienced friendly guy and was passionate about equipping me with the important techniques of power boating. I 100% recommend this 2 day course to anyone who is slightly interested or loves the thrill of boating. You won’t regret it. 🙂

Noel and his team excel in everyway when teaching and training. Everyone is made to feel important and time is given to go back over key points if you don't understand. I would highly recommend them.

Get lost boating training is a very professional and welcoming boating school, they offer many courses for all of your boating needs. I have done the level 2 powerboating course that was brilliant fun and have learned so much over the 2 days I will confidently be able to go out on a powerboat up to 10m length anywhere I like including spain where I will be renting boats. I am now doing the VHF radio course , The navigation course and the first aid course. Highly recommended, great value for money and a very friendly instructor.

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
