Emergency First Response
Course Duration: 1 DAY
First Aid and CPR are good skills for everyone, not just scuba divers. You need these skills for the PADI Rescue Diver course. The Emergency First Response (EFR) course teaches you medical emergency response skills and gives you the confidence to help in an actual emergency.
What you learn in the EFR course:
• BLS (Basic Life Support) CPR and rescue breathing at the layperson level
• Preventing and caring for shock
• Spinal injury management
• Use of barriers to reduce disease transmission risk
• Basic first aid and first aid kit considerations
These skills can be used in any area or environment from being a parent, working with children or being involved in adventure sports. Most work organisations will accept this as a First Aid course to be used, recognised and credited.
