First Aid Courses – ISA Emergency Care Certificate
ISA Emergency Care Certificate
The aim of this course is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge required to provide emergency care in the marine environment and on inland waterways where professional medical assistance should be available within 30 minutes.
No previous knowledge or experience is required.
The ISA Emergency Care Certificate Course consists of a minimum of 14 hours contact training. However the length of the course may be extended where it suits, or is necessary, for participants to take a more relaxed approach to the programme.
The ISA Emergency Care Certificate remains valid for 5 years subject to a half day annual refresher module being attended. This will include CPR and protocol updates. Following a 5 year period, attendance on a full 14 hour course is mandatory.
Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Training Module
The aim of this course is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge required to use an Automated External Defibrillator to provide emergency first aid.
Previous experience or knowledge required;
Participants must hold a current First Aid certificate from a course that has included CPR such as the ISA Emergency First Aid Course.
The AED Training Module will normally consist of a minimum of 6 hours contact training. However the length of the course may be extended where it suits, or is necessary, for participants to take a more relaxed approach to the programme.
Certificates are valid for a period of three years after which they may be revalidated by attending a 2 hour re-validation course. However, the ISA strongly recommends that all First Aiders with AED certification complete an annual CPR refresher course which includes use of AEDs.
The ISA Emergency Care Course is offered in association with the Academy of Emergency Care in Sport and The Department of Emergency Medicine, Cork University Hospital.
