First Aid training and CPR are essential skills for anyone involved in adventure sports – just in case. Primary and Secondary Care training including CPR, AED and First Aid training is therefore included on this course. Also, you need these skills for the PADI Rescue Diver course. Emergency First Response is a PADI affiliate that specialises in teaching these lifesaving skills – and they’re for anyone, not just divers. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors!
To start the Emergency First Response courses, you must care about other people and want to be able to assist them in a medical emergency.
Session 1 – theory review and skill practice
Session 2 – skill practice continued, scenario assessment and final exam
The Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care course is located at the Academy of Scuba dive centre.
Beside the Primary and Secondary Care Courses, Emergency First Response also offers Care for Children and other emergency training programs. After completing Primary and Secondary Care, take the PADI Rescue Diver course and the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course. Together, these three courses round out your ability to handle scuba diver emergencies. For more information about this or other PADI courses have a chat with one of the Academy of Scuba team members.
Academy of Scuba is lucky to have some of the best dive professionals in the business.

If you are also completing the PADI Rescue Diver course, you will need to fill out a medical questionnaire. If there are any ‘yes’ answers you will need to get a recreational dive medical from an accredited dive doctor listed here.
We highly recommend that you have access to a car for the duration of your course as Academy of Scuba does not offer transportation services currently.
