PRESERVING LIFE ON THE OCEAN WAVE

 

A course in medical care on board ship will be introduced at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside in October.

 

Designed to give senior shipís officers the knowledge and skills to identify a range of surgical and medical emergencies the programme replaces the Ship Captainsí medical programme and is intended for shipís masters and senior level shipís management officers.

      Ensure a safe and healthy environment to passengers and crew members

      Maintain records in accordance with legislation

      Recognise situations where help is required

 

Studied either full or part-time depending on the groupís needs, the course is available at a subsidised rate of £200 which includes an optional first aid refresher.

 

The programmes can be delivered in Grimsby, Lincoln or Scunthorpe. For more details please contact June Owen or Jan Gilbert on 01522 882000.
