The Maritime Skills Academy Brings Its Updated Medical Care Course To Portsmouth, UK

To extend the MSA’s training portfolio, we are now offering Updating Medical Courses at a new location in Portsmouth and Solent area.

This is an intensive course that requires a certain amount of self-study in the evenings. Having an up to date First Aid knowledge is essential and a good working knowledge of the Ships Captains Medical Guide and the M1768 Ships Medical Stores List would be helpful.

The aim of the course is to provide Masters and other persons designated to take charge of medical care on UK or EU flag vessels who are required to undertake updated training in Proficiency in Medical Care on Board Ship every 5 years, the training set out in Table A-VI/4-2.

There will be a particular focus on:

–  Updating the learner on changes in resuscitation and bleeds management
–  Refreshing the learner’s knowledge on the medication and equipment on the M1768 Ships Medical Stores list.
–  Fine tuning the skills required to carry out certain medical procedures.

Due to popular demand of these courses on the South Coast, along with our medical courses, we will be running a variety of our classroom based courses here too, including security courses, Crowd Management and Crisis Management & Human Behaviour.

To book onto our courses in Portsmouth or our Dover academy, please contact one of the booking team by emailing info@vikingmsa.com or ring on +44 (0)300 303 8393.
