This course is designed to be completed in the 6 weeks prior to attending the practical Medical Care for Offshore and Inland Waters course. The “course and unit content” component details a series of specific tasks including reading articles, watching videos and preparing equipment. These tasks are essential to successful participation in the practical course. There is a separate reading resources component. This contains optional material that may be of interest, either in a more general sense, or in the rather more specific sense of assisting you to write your post course assignment.
