EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE Good skills for anyone involved in adventure sports

The Emergency First Response with DIVE SOURCE

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 specializes in teaching these lifesaving skills – and they’re for anyone, not just divers. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors!

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

Prerequisites

  • Must be 12 years of age or older. 

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. Students read and complete exercises in the EFR Textbook before class. The Classroom session will consist of a mix of video presentations, instructor lecture and hands-on, scenario-based training.

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.

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 and the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course Together, these three courses round out your ability to handle scuba diver emergencies.
