Emergency First Response

EFR2To be certified as a Rescue Diver, participants must have completed a sanctioned course in CPR within the past 2 years. Introduced in 2003, PADI and DSAT came together to develop Emergency First Response (EFR), which includes both a primary care component (CPR) and secondary care (First Aid).

Together, these courses can be used toward your Rescue Diver Certification, although they are valuable courses on their own. The EFR Primary and secondary care courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care, and are geared towards divers and non-divers alike.

The EFR course can be completed in one evening, and is designed like other two tiered first aid courses; i.e. you could just take CPR, or First Aid. Although the EFR is generally paired with the Rescue Course, it is offered for all divers and non-divers alike! In fact, it is currently accepted by workplace BC, as a sanctioned First Aid Course.

Combine EFR with PADI Rescue Course: $399.95
