ERF – Emergency First Response
Many divers take the Emergency First Response courses to meet program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver. However, most have also found the EFR program to be important in every day life. They have taken a significant step in emergency preparedness, and feel confident that they can provide care should an emergency situation arise.
The course incorporates independent study to prepare you for a classroom and hands-on skill development session with your instructor. You will learn the same patient care techniques used by medical professionals, but at a lay person level. Depending on the amount of independent study and the class size, the Primary Care and Secondary Care courses may be completed in as little as four to eight hours. We run the Emergency First Response course for businesses, schools or anybody wanting to become more self efficient and responsible.
Remember you could save a life.
PADI RESCUE Course
Diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies. Many divers say this is the best course they have ever taken.
During the course you will cover the following:
Self-rescue and diver stress, Emergency management and equipment, Panicked diver response, In-water rescue breathing protocols, Underwater problems, Surfacing the unconscious diver, Egress (exits), missing diver procedures and Dive accident scenarios with first aid procedures for pressure related accidents. The course price includes your manuals and your certification and use of all equipment for the duration of the course. To start the PADI Rescue course you need to have at least 20 logged dives. Before certification you must either complete the PADI Emergency First Response Course or have done a recognized first aid course in the past two years (proof required).
