Overview

Course
Syllabus

RYA Sea Survival is a one-day course is useful for all small craft users. It provides an understanding of how to use the safety equipment on board your boat and gives you essential knowledge of what to do in an emergency situation. Emergencies can happen anywhere – you don’t have to be offshore – making this course ideal for anyone who spends time on the water.

Liferafts, the equipment they contain and survival techniques form the central part of the RYA Sea Survival course. You will be taught about how to launch rafts, what the initial and subsequent actions in a raft are and receive some sound advice on longer term survival. Other topics covered include the design of lifejackets, hypothermia and Search and Rescue techniques.
 
RYA Sea Survival is a thought-provoking and hands-on course. It includes a two hour practical session in a pool and students are encouraged to bring along their own wet weather gear and lifejacket in order to experience first-hand the problems of entering and assisting the entrance of others, into an inflated and uncooperative liferaft whilst fully kitted out.
 
This certificate forms one day of the RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety course and is also required for those seeking commercial endorsements on a Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster™ Certificate of Competence qualification.
