Emergency First Response (EFR)

Someone suddenly needs emergency medical aid. Do you know how to help? Maybe it’s time to learn. In as little as eight hours, Emergency First Response can show you how to save someone’s life using basic first aid and CPR.

Getting certified in First Aid and CPR has never been so simple. You will learn the same emergency aid techniques used by paramedics and doctors, but at a layman’s level. In addition to CPR, you will learn how to administer first aid properly while effectively using the most up-to-date methods. And, remember that Emergency First Response meets PADI’s Rescue Diver requirements for CPR.The Automated External Defibrillator Training teaches you how to provide care for a person who experiences sudden cardiac arrest in any setting.


  • Participants of all ages are welcome to attend this this course
  • No previous scuba certification is necessary


The course is approximately 6 hours of classroom training with a PADI Instructor. The Emergency First Response course includes course content covering Primary Care (CPR), Secondary Care (First Aid) and AED (Automated External Defibrillation).



The Primary Care training focuses on how to respond to life-threatening emergencies using a combination of knowledge  and skill development, as well as realistic scenario practice.


Emergency First Response Secondary Care (first aid) covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening. Participants focus on secondary assessment and first aid.


The Automated External Defibrillation (AED) training builds on the skills learned in the Primary Care course and teaches proper AED use.
