Learn and practice basic first aid skills
Whether you are embarking on the Rescue Diver Course, and need to gain basic first aid skills or you simply want to increase your ability to deal with land-based medical emergencies, this course is ideal. Emergency First Response training focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn easy-to-follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a stress-free learning environment. All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you start learning right away. EFR courses meet the Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and first aid training requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings.
This course is supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning. The training takes three days two hours each day:
- Primary Care (CPR) – This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies. You’ll practice eight skills for aiding patients who aren’t breathing, have no heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, may be in shock or who may have serious bleeding.
- Secondary Care (First Aid) – Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to provide first aid that eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm.
- Care for Children – This course allows participants to learn, practice and apply emergency care skills specific to helping infants and children with medical emergencies.
- CPR & AED – This course focuses on CPR training and teaching participants how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). When workplace or governmental requirements specify this training, the CPR & AED course meets the need.
- First Aid at Work – In some areas, such as Great Britain, Australia and Canada, governmental regulations call for enhanced CPR and first aid training for the workplace.
- EFR Refresher – It’s a good idea to refresh your CPR and first aid skills every 24 months, and that’s what the EFR Refresher course is designed to do.
