Medical Care

During the course STCW Medical Care, the skills of the course STCW Medical First Aid are extended and complemented with extra skills. The course Medical Care teaches you to adequately act to accidents and illnesses when no external medical support is available. The captain is initially responsible for this and should therefore be able to support the victim with medical support at any time. Next to the captain, another employee is often appointed as responsible for the medical care on board.
