We have a range of courses that provide boaters with additional skills and knowledge so they can avoid getting into difficulties and so they know what to do if they do!
These courses include:
The ISA Emergency care training scheme is a 2 day course providing participants with the skills and knowledge required to provide emergency first aid in the marine environment.
Basic Marine Engine Course
The ISA Basic Marine Engine course is a new scheme which will provide boaters with information on the various engine types in the marine environment. It will also allow boaters to maintain engines to help prevent mechanical breakdown.
