PADI Emergency First Response

The PADI Emergency First Response (EFR) Primary and Secondary Care course is a vital step towards becoming a well-prepared and confident responder in emergency situations. Designed for divers and non-divers alike, this course focuses on essential life-saving skills that can be applied in various scenarios, both within and beyond the diving context.

Primary Care: In the primary care segment, participants learn and practice critical techniques such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid for life-threatening emergencies. The goal is to equip individuals with the skills needed to intervene rapidly and effectively in situations where every second counts.

Secondary Care: The secondary care portion of the course covers first aid for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses. Participants learn how to assess and respond to a range of medical situations, from minor injuries to more significant health issues. This knowledge is invaluable not only in the diving environment but in everyday life as well.

Hands-On Training: The course is hands-on and interactive, allowing participants to practice and reinforce their skills through realistic scenarios. Whether you’re a diver seeking to enhance your safety awareness or a non-diver looking to be more prepared for emergencies, the PADI Emergency First Response course provides a solid foundation in life-saving skills.

Internationally Recognized Certification: Upon successful completion of the course, participants receive an internationally recognized certification, valid for two years. This certification is a prerequisite for several PADI professional-level courses and is widely accepted in various non-diving settings, making it a valuable asset for anyone committed to safety and well-being.
