Course Overview

If you want to be prepared for any situation, then the Emergency First Response (EFR) course serves as the right preparation. 

The course meets the CPR and first aid training requirements required for undertaking the PADI Rescue Diver course and all other professional-level ratings. Many courses such as the PADI Rescue Diver and PADI Divemaster courses require divers to have taken the EFP courses as required preparation. 

The EFR course will focus on helping to build confidence and to increase willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Participants will learn the importance of emergency care step by step and practice applying skills in a fun and non-stressful learning environment. The course is supported by self-study manuals, videos, and quick reference cards to help enhance learning. Much of the course requires independent study to prepare for both classroom and hands-on skill development sessions with the instructor. 

About the Courses 

The Emergency First Response (EFR) courses, Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid), are skill intensive and consists of a 1-day classroom session.

Primary Care (CPR) will teach participants how to respond to life-threatening emergencies. Through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice, participants will gain the knowledge and confidence they need to respond to any medical emergency.

The Secondary Care (First Aid) course covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening. Participants will mainly focus on secondary assessment and first aid through knowledge development, skill development, and realistic scenario practice.
