Emergency First Responder

Emergency First Responder

Become more confident in an emergency, and turn yourself into an invaluable dive buddy, by doing an EFR course. This course is a prerequisite for Rescue Diver.

First aid and CPR are good skills for anyone involved in adventure sports – just in case. And, you need these skills for the Rescue Diver course.

What You Learn in the EFR Primary and Secondary Care Courses:

  • BLS (Basic Life Support) CPR and rescue breathing
  • AED (automated external defibrillator) use (optional)
  • Preventing and caring for shock
  • Spinal injury management
  • Use of barriers to reduce disease transmission risk
  • Basic first aid and first aid kit considerations

I am also able to teach the following emergency care-related PADI Specialties:

For SDI I teach the CPROX Administrator (combining CPR and emergency oxygen administration), CPR1st (CPR and first aid), and CPROX1st AED (CPR, emergency oxygen, first aid and the uses of an AED) courses.
