Finns West is now offering USCG approved First Aid / CPR / AED classes for INITIAL or RENEWAL of Merchant Mariner Captain License.
As USCG Captains ourselves, we understand how confusing the requirements are for the initial or renewal of your Captain's License and the First Aid / CPR certification requirements.
Not all First Aid/CPR certifications are accepted by the USCG.
We have worked all of that out and offer a First Aid with CPR AED class that is appoved and accepted by the USCG wether for your initial or renewal license requirement.
The class is the AHA HEARTSAVER FIRST AID with CPR AED.
Participants will receive the USCG require and approved

We occasionally hold open classes and those can be found on our Calendar of Events page-hit the button below to head over to that page to see if we have any classes scheduled.
More often than not, we are contacted by a group of Captains that need recertification or several folks reach out around the same time and we open a class up.
Feel free to reach out to us if you have a group that needs recertification or to check if we may be running a class down the road.
