midcoast first aid
Provides comprehensive basic first aid and CPR training as well as USCG approved medical courses in the Mid-Coast Maine area.
Midcoast First Aid was started in 2007 to provide comprehensive basic first aid and CPR training as well as United States Coast Guard approved medical courses in the Mid-Coast Maine area.
The primary focus was to fill a gap in basic shipboard first aid. As regulations in training and requirements have changes Midcoast First Aid strives to keep ahead of the changes and provide everyone from the professional mariner to the weekend boater the most up to date and comprehensive training possible.
In 2009, the company received its first major USCG approval in our Medical Care Provider Course, over the past few years we grow to offer more course not only in the medical field but to encompass may marine safety related topics. At this time the company has four USCG approvals and only hopes to grow in the coming months and years. Working with our training partners we hope to provide high quality maritime training for years to come!
