Marine Basic First Aid Training & Certification

For Commercial and Recreational Boaters
Marine Basic First Aid is a two-day course offering an overview of first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills for the marine/fishing industry. Course meets the requirements of Transport Canada outlined in Transport Publication (TP) 13008.

MBFA is designed for any person who wants to obtain a rating certificate, endorsement, or a Master or Chief Mate limited certification, and for those providing first aid on board a vessel engaged on a near-coastal voyage, class 2, or on a vessel on sheltered waters. Course is also open to recreational boaters. Red Cross Certificate valid for 3 years.

This course serves the First Aid and CPR training needs of recreational boaters and their crew for responding to injuries and illness within the marine environment.
Every recreational boater should know the basics for self-preservation at sea, including how to prevent injury and illness and what to do in the event of a mishap on board.
