1 day | Day Course

Acquire the skills and knowledge that could save your dive buddy's life or other divers'life!

The PADI EFR is not a diving course. In this one-day course, you will learn the correct way to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR – Primary Care) and first aid instructions (Secondary Care) with many practical exercises: how to address wounds, cuts, fractures, and other injuries.

Moreover, you will learn how to handle injuries caused by aquatic life.


Who know when we may encounter an emergency?

With this basic first aid and life-saving skills, you will be more confident and well-prepared to deal with a crisis.
