Emergency First Response (EFR) training focuses on building your confidence and increasing your willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. This course meets the CPR and first aid training requirements for the Master Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings.
The EFR course is based on internationally recognised medical guidelines for emergency care.
There are several sections to the EFR course which can be conducted all together or as individual courses:
Primary Care (CPR) & Secondary Care (First Aid)
This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies as well as how to deal with non life-threatening injuries and illnesses. You’ll practice skills for aiding patients who aren’t breathing, have no heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, may be in shock or who may have serious bleeding. You’ll learn to how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient, so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive. You will also learn how to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.
Care for Children
This course allows participants to learn, practice and apply emergency care skills specific to helping infants and children with medical emergencies. It’s designed for those who work with children or are likely to have to respond to emergencies involving youngsters.
CPR & AED
This course focuses on CPR training and teaching participants how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator). When workplace or governmental requirements specify this training, the CPR & AED course meets the need.
It’s a good idea to refresh your CPR and first aid skills every 24 months, and that’s what the EFR Refresher course is designed to do. Focusing on key skills, the course allows you to stay up-to-date and ready to lend aid when needed.
