Many divers take the Emergency First Response courses to meet program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. However, most have also found the EFR program to be important in every day life. They have taken a significant step in emergency preparedness, and feel confident that they can provide care should an emergency situation arise.
The course incorporates independent study to prepare you for a classroom and hands-on skill development session conducted over 2 evenings from 7pm – 10pm(dependent on student #’s) with your instructor. You will learn the same patient care techniques used by medical professionals, but at a lay person level.
