PADI Emergency First Response (EFR)
Emergency First Response (EFR) training focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn simple to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a non-stressful learning environment. All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you start learning right away.
EFR courses meet the CPR and first aid training requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings.
The following EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care.
(PADI Care for Children course also available).
