Emergency First Response Course
Our Emergency First Response (EFR) program covers:
- Emergency First Response – Primary Care (CPR) teaches participants how to respond to life-threatening emergencies.
- Emergency First Response – Secondary Care (First Aid) covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening.
As one of the foremost international CPR and First Aid training companies, Emergency First Response (EFR) gives you the confidence to respond to medical emergencies – not just in the diving world, but in your everyday world with your family, friends, neighbours, class mates and co-workers too.
However, 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.
But, most have also found the EFR program to be important in every day life. They have taken a significant step in emergency preparedness and feel confident that they can provide care should an emergency situation arise. Would you know what to do if someone collapses? Falls down some stairs? Receives a serious burn whilst cooking in the kitchen?
The Emergency First Response program meets requirements for CPR and First Aid in the workplace (Asia Pacific) and incorporates the latest procedures for emergency patient care. This program also supports the following formal work training packages in Australia – HLTCPR201A, Perform CPR / HLTFA201A, Provide Basic Emergency Life Support / HLTFA301B, Apply First Aid /SRXFAD001A, Provide First Aid
What will I do?
The course incorporates independent study to prepare you for a classroom and hands-on skill development session with your instructor.
