First aid and CPR skills are invaluable to Everyone, not just SCUBA divers!



First aid and CPR skills are invaluable to everyone, not just divers and by adding the Emergency First Response Instructor (EFR) rating to your professional repertoire enables you to teach anyone, anywhere vital skills that could really help someone in need.
Emergency First Response is an internationally recognised CPR and First Aid training organisation that follows internationally recognised medical guidelines for emergency care.

Upon successful completion of the course you will be authorised to teach the following courses:
• Primary Care
• Secondary Care
• Care for Children
• CPR and AED

EFR gives you, the instructor, a lot of flexibility in combining these courses to tailor training to your students needs and this makes it a very attractive alternative to some of the other more widely recognised agencies.

You do not even need to be a diver to be able to teach this course. You need to be:
• At least 18 year’s old

The EFR Instructor course is scheduled over 2 days and includes a combination of independent study, classroom presentations and fun practical work.

We will look at the philosophy behind EFR’s training program and :
• How you can build confidence in your students and increase their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency

• Developing role model, demonstration quality emergency skills
• Developing an understanding of the structure, requirements and procedures for teaching the full range of courses
