Emergency First Response

A non-diving certification which teaches you the basic first aid and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and more cares. This is a requirement for every course taken from Rescue Diver and on.

Primary Care:

A non-diving certification which teaches you the basic first aid and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This program has no minimum age requirements so is ideal for all family members. This certification is a prerequisite for all PADI courses beyond the Advanced Open Water Diver. In just a 1/2 day you can build your confidence and know how to act in the event of an emergency.

Secondary Care:

Build upon your CPR skills by learning how to provide secondary care to a patient when the care provided by local emergency services will be delayed. The secondary care module shows you how to assess illnesses, injuries and splint wounds. Other additional skills include an orientation to using an automated external defibrillator’, providing oxygen, and dealing with choking adults. In 1 day, become a competent Emergency First Responder.

Care for Children:

The Emergency First Response Care for Children course is designed to help you deal with emergencies involving infants and babies. Please add $20 to the cost of the EFR Primary and Secondary Care course price to include Care for Children.
