NCL First Aid Information

The First Aid Course must include:  CPR/First Aid for Adult, Children and Infants.

When booking your course you must submit the syllabus stating that the First Aid covers Adult, Children and Infants. The syllabus or letter from the provider must be on letterhead and state the following:

If  you are not able to find one course that covers all ages, you may have to take separate courses that covers the missing areas.

It is important that every Youth Counselor onboard is prepared with the training necessary to administer the proper attention in the event of an emergency.  We cannot take a chance especially when dealing with children.

Any candidate that cannot provide this information, will not be considered for hire.
