    Course Structure
    Emergency First Response (EFR) is a very innovative first aid program with broad training about primary (Basic Life Support) and secondary care.

    Many divers take the Emergency First Response courses to meet program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. However, non-divers also benefit from this programme. It prepares you for emergencies in your daily life, so that you feel confident that you can provide care should an emergency situation arise.

    The course incorporates independent study to prepare you for a classroom and hands-on skill development sessions with your instructor. You will learn the same patient care techniques used by medical professionals, but at a lower level.

    There are two parts to the course: primary and secondary care, which can be taken as one combined course (this meets the prerequisites to enroll into the Rescue Diver course) or as two individual programs.

    Primary care focuses on basic life support and includes eight mandatory skills plus three optional skills. Secondary care builds on primary care and focuses on important skills if Emergency Medical Services is delayed or unavailable.

    Both courses are video supported and include a combination of knowledge development and skill practices. Various rescue scenarios will ensure that you understand all course topics and that you are able to apply your knowledge.
