First Aid

Postby Jon » Tue Nov 15, 2011 5:47 am

My first aid has expired. I've heard the rules have changed. I have a 4th class, can I legally sail without a 1st aid cert?
Will basic marine 1st aid do? What about foreign going ships?
Thanks, Jon

Hello Jon, I see no one else has answered your question. There is a pretty good discussion on this board regarding first aid and medical. You can find it here - http://www.dieselduck.net/forum/viewtop ... f=15&t=436. In particular you might like this post - http://www.dieselduck.net/forum/viewtop ... =436#p1933 which address your very question. Albeit being second hand information, your ticket would be valid even if your FA is expired.
