First aid requirement for racing

What level is required for first aid? Driver/ throttles. Called St Johns and they have many different courses. Who should I contact to move forward on this? or where can I find this information?
Thanks

Hi, I would imagine the rya one would be better as its the one they use for commercial licenses and it has more emphasis on water Bourne risks.

I just renewed mine and it has more on hypothermia and secondary drowning.

Just my 2p worth.

First Aid

RYA First Aid, one day course is probably the most appropriate.

Also, it's not a compulsory requirement to hold a first aid certificate for ALL classes of racing, it's primarily Marathon where you will need to be self-sufficient when some distance from rescue services.
