Emergency First Response with Academy of Scuba

Learn the essentials of First Aid when dealing with diving and non-diving injuries.

Anyone interested in adventure sports should have first aid and CPR training, just in case. This Emergency First Response Course includes both primary and secondary care training, such as CPR, AED, and first aid. These abilities are also required for the PADI Rescue Diver Course.
Emergency First Response is a PADI affiliate that specializes in teaching essential lifesaving techniques to non-divers as well. The majority of PADI instructors are also EFR instructors!


Imagine being confident to give primary or secondary care to someone in need of help. Would you be confident and comfortable to give care if you hadn’t practiced? We don’t think so! For that reason we take our time with this first aid training course and ensure that every skills that is taught is practiced again and again, until you are comfortable


Our central location in Camberwell makes it easy to find us. In two evenings, you will have the skills and confidence to give primary or secondary care to someone in need of assistance.
