EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE Learn The Essentials Of First Aid When Dealing With Diving And Non Diving Injuries

Emergency First Response with ACADEMY OF SCUBA

First aid and CPR are good skills for anyone involved in adventure sports – just in case. And, 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!


The Fun Part

The fun part about Emergency First Response training is learning serious medical emergency response skills in an upbeat, positive environment. You gain the confidence that you are prepared to help in an emergency.


What You Learn in the EFR Primary and Secondary Care Courses

  • BLS (Basic Life Support), CPR and rescue breathing so you can perform this comfortably should you need to
  • AED (automated external defibrillator) use
  • Preventing and caring for shock
  • Spinal injury management
  • Use of barriers to reduce disease transmission risk
  • Basic first aid and first aid kit considerations


The Learning Materials You Need

Through a combination of independent study and skill practice with one of our instructors, you’ll build the confidence and skills to provide basic emergency care. The Primary and Secondary Care Manual and video on DVD preview emergency scenarios and provide step-by-step skill demonstrations.

The Emergency First Response Care at a Glance card is a quick-reference guide for emergency situations. Designed to fit in a glove compartment or backpack, the Care at a Glance card is an important component for any first-aid or disaster preparedness kit.

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact ACADEMY OF SCUBA.
