Training

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 simple-to-follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a non-stressful learning environment. All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning.

 

EFR courses meet the CPR and first aid training requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings. PADI Rescue Divers and PADI Professionals are required to have CPR and First Aid Training. 

 

EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care.
