The one-day First Aid for Divers course teaches the basic first aid likely to be needed to treat an injury in a diving environment, which is not covered anywhere else in the BSAC Diver Training Programme (DTP).
In a mixture of theory and practical sessions, you will learn the principles and priorities of first aid, including how to summon help, and casualty examination, along with the treatments for shock, bleeding and burns. Injuries to muscles, bones and joints, and other diving-related conditions are also covered.
There is lots of practice to be had under the guidance of experienced instructors, and, alongside traditional first aid kits, the course includes making use of the resources likely to be available on a dive site.
