Wellington Ocean Sports will be running a Coastal Medic course over the weekend of 16 and 17 November. This course offers participants the qualifications of Coastguard Boating Education Service Marine Medic (Coastal), NZQA units 6400, 6401, 6402 and Maritime New Zealand commercial first aid. It should be a prerequisite for anyone involved in ocean sports.

•Treating Internal & External Bleeding
•Managing Torso Injuries
