This course offers participants the qualifications of Coastguard Boating Education Service Marine Medic (Coastal), NZQA units 6400, 6401, 6402 and Maritime New Zealand commercial first aid. It should be a prerequisite for anyone involved in ocean sports.

Marine First Aid Courses
We offer two Marine First Aid Courses, the 'Race Medic' course and the two day 'Coastal Medic' course. Both of these courses are endorsed by Coastguard Boating Education Services.
The 'Race Medic' course is a one day introductory course focused on providing essential life saving skills.
The 'Coastal Medic' course is held over two days and is equivalent to a Workplace First Aid course, it aims to provide you with the skills to manage trauma for up to 24 hours with little outside assistance. The course is recognised by both Maritime New Zealand and the NZQA unit standards system. The 'Coastal Medic' course is also a pre-requiste for the 'Offshore Medic' and 'Ocean Yachtmaster' qualifications.
