We have recently achieved RYA (Royal Yachting Association) acceptance on one of our courses. A client had asked us if our ‘First Response for Scout Leaders’ course was approved by the RYA. We contacted the RYA and were told that we could apply to have it recognised. This was quite a long and difficult process as many First Response courses do not meet the RYA’s stringent criteria on the ‘hours for renewal’ section as well as a couple of other parts. In completing the required application process for the RYA, we had noticed that some of our other courses are already accepted. These are the EFAW, FAW and FPOS I courses. However these courses are often not completed by leaders from Scouting and Guiding. We are very pleased to now be able to offer our ‘First Response for Scout Leaders’ course to Scout and Guide groups that also need a first aid course that is RYA accepted.
