Learn First Aid in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere with our PADI Emergency First Response course (EFR)
The Emergency First Response course is an innovative CPR / First Aid program, which is split into two segments; Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid). In addition we also offer full Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training.
Many divers take the Emergency First Response course to meet program pre-requisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. However, the EFR program is important in every day life. Its a significant step in emergency readiness, and students feel confident that they can provide care should an emergency situation arise.
There are no Pre-Requisites required.
What will I do?
The course incorporates independent study to prepare you for a classroom and hands-on skill development session with your instructor. You will learn the same patient care techniques used by medical professionals, but at a lay person level.
Practical Application specific to learning philosophy, establish skill retention through increased skill demonstration, practice and repetition. The course is designed to help participants remember appropriate emergency care procedures in times of need. It also encourages students to apply these procedures by assisting those needing Emergency Medical Care.
Within the course segments, the CPR and First Aid skills are integrated into an easy-to-remember emergency care sequence.
The EFR Primary section teaches students to deal with possible life threatening injuries and apply techniques such as CPR and AED.
The EFR Secondary section covers secondary patient assessment and first aid. This covers head to toe evaluations of patients, illness assessments and how to bandage or splint a wound until Emergency Medical Services arrive.
