Emergency First Response training aims to increase self-confidence and willingness to intervene in medical emergency situations in lay rescuers. Course participants learn easy-to-follow steps in emergency care, and practice applying skills in a low-stress learning environment. All courses are based on self-study thanks to manuals, videos and quick reference templates, which optimize learning and allow you to start studying right away.
EFR courses meet CPR and first aid requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and all professional levels. Most PADI Instructors also hold the rank of Emergency First Response Instructors.
The following EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care
Primary Care (CPR) - This course teaches you the steps and techniques for dealing with emergencies that put victims' lives at risk. You will practice eight skills to help patients who are not breathing, have no heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, be in shock, or have severe bleeding. You will learn how to perform CPR and continue monitoring the patient, in order to provide every chance of survival pending EMS.
Secondary Care (First Aid) - Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you to provide first aid that calms pain and reduces the risk of further harm. You will learn to evaluate a variety of injuries and diseases, and practice bandages and splints.
Care for Children - This course allows participants to learn, practice and apply emergency medical care skills specific to babies and children. It is designed for those who work closely with children or may find themselves having to respond to emergencies involving younger people. This course is often integrated into Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) courses.
CPR & AED - This course focuses on CPR training and teaches participants how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). When workplaces or government requirements specify this training, the CPR & AED course meets them. This course is often integrated into First Aid at Work programs.
First Aid at Work - In some areas, such as Great Britain, Australia and Canada, government laws require CPR and first aid training for the workplace. First Aid at Work programs are designed for these areas and, while they allow you to follow the simple educational approach to EFR training, they include additional topics and skills to meet those requirements.
EFR Refresher - Reviewing your CPR and First Aid skills every 24 months is a good idea, and that's what the EFR Refresher course does: by focusing on key skills, it allows you to stay up to date and ready to help in times of need.
