Requirement Students must be 21 years old or above and must be in receipt of a Medical First Aid certificate issued within the previous five years. Students must also have a minimum of 18 months sea time. Handouts will be provided but students will need to take notes.

Candidates will also need to bring with them proof of identity (either a seaman's Discharge Book or other National Identification).
