Cost is £30, and the course will take place on the island, venue to be confirmed. Please contact the Resource Centre as soon as possible to book your place.

Powerboat Training Opportunities

Friday 8 January 2016

We have the opportunity for further powerboat training for Rathlin residents with Charles Stewart of Red Bay Powerboating. This can be for beginners (Level 2 for adults, Level 1 for young people) or for people who have already successfully completed powerboat training before or have similar professional experience or qualifications (Intermediate and possibly Advanced - see Red Bay website for more information on the training levels).

First Aid Training


Thursday 29 January 2015

The first aid training course held last Tuesday in the Parochial Hall was very successful. Organised with Bisp Training, the course covered all the basics of first aid, but with a particular emphasis on paediatric first aid - courtesy of last year's baby boom! Many thanks to Ian Harkness of Bisp Training, for giving the course, and to Janice Bisp for her help with organising it. First aid skills are recognised by all Rathlin residents as being something that is particularly important for an island community, and you can't have too many people on the island who are qualified.
