EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care

First aid and CPR are good skills for anyone involved in adventure sports – just in case. And, you need these skills for the PADI Rescue Diver course. Emergency First Response is a PADI affiliate that specialises in teaching these lifesaving skills – and they’re for anyone, not just divers. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors!

The Fun Part

The fun part about Emergency First Response training is learning serious medical emergency response skills in an upbeat, positive environment. You gain the confidence that you are prepared to help in an emergency.

What You Learn in the EFR Primary and Secondary Care Courses

  • BLS (Basic Life Support) CPR and rescue breathing at the layperson level
  • 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

The Learning Materials You Need

Through a combination of independent study and skill practice with an instructor, you’ll build the confidence and skills to provide basic emergency care. The Primary and Secondary Care Manual and video on DVD preview emergency scenarios and provide step-by-step skill demonstrations.

The Emergency First Response Care at a Glance card is a quick-reference guide for emergency situations. Designed to fit in a glove compartment or backpack, the Care at a Glance card is an important component for any first-aid or disaster preparedness kit.

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact SCUBAVERSITY.

Prerequisites

To enroll in Emergency First Response courses, you must:

  • Care about other people and want to be able to assist them in a medical emergency

Your Next Adventure

Beside the Primary and Secondary Care Courses, Emergency First Response offers Care for Children and other emergency training programs.

After completing Primary and Secondary Care, take the PADI Rescue Diver course. Together, these two courses round out your ability to handle scuba diver emergencies.
