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.

What will I do?
EFR Primary and Secondary Care
Through a combination of knowledge development and hands-on skill practice, you’ll learn how to identify and respond to life-threatening emergencies (primary care). Learn how to identify a stroke, handle a spinal injury, administer CPR and gain other essential lifesaving skills.
During the secondary care part of the course, you’ll learn how to handle injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life-threatening. Learn how to bandage and splint injuries, burn care, what to do following an animal bite or sting and other basic first aid skills. Your instructor will help you build confidence through hands-on practice in realistic scenarios.
First Aid and CPR Refresher Training
Emergency care skills fade quickly if not practiced regularly. Experts recommend refreshing your CPR and first aid skills every year. Maintain your knowledge investment with our EFR Refresher Course, even if your original training was with another organisation.
When are they held?
Sessions are held at the dive shop Scuderia House, Swindon SATNAV SN2 1EG.
Now that you have completed the EFR course you are better equipped to give assistance during any medical emergencies which may arise.
Keep these skills up to date and your knowledge fresh by enrolling on the EFR refresher courses held throughout the year.
The PADI Oxygen Administration Specialty compliments the EFR course by teaching divers how to diagnose when and how to give emergency oxygen. The course covers diving related medical problems such as decompression sickness, lung overexpansion injury and near drowning.
The EFR course is based on internationally recognised medical guidelines for Emergency Care and is the fastest-growing international CPR, Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and First Aid training organisation.
Dedicated to training the lay rescuer, EFR courses encompasses adult, child and infant CPR skills, provides AED and First Aid training, and feature an outstanding First Aid at Work component.
The Emergency First Response course meets requirements for CPR and First Aid in the workplace (OSHA Guideline 29 CFR 1910.151), and incorporates the latest procedures for emergency patient care.
