If you’ve been considering expanding your dive operation to include Emergency First Response (EFR) courses but are unsure of what courses are available, check out the guide below:
- Primary Care is a course covering life threatening conditions and focuses on a simple set of priorities (ABCABS) so that emergency providers know what to do and when.
- Secondary Care is all about non-life threatening conditions. Providers learn how to look after victims until the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrive, and how to monitor and prevent further injury.
- Primary and Secondary Care is the most common combination and is a prerequisite for PADI Rescue Diver, Divemaster and Emergency First Response Instructor levels.
- Care for Children is a primary and secondary course focused on infants and children. It can be combined with other courses or run separately.
- CPR and AED is a short course focused just on CPR and the use of AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators). It is an ideal introduction to first aid training.
- Regional courses are courses that meet specific regional needs, such as workplace first aid requirements or training for child care professionals. Check out the EFR website to see what is available in your area.
