Save life with the PADI® Emergency First Response Program!
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.
Many divers take the PADI Emergency First Response courses to meet the Diving program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. But, most have also found the Emergency First Response ( EFR ) program necessary in everyday life.
With the EFR course, you'll be ready to help a needy buddy. Coral Grand Divers can take you to Emergency First Responder Trainer if you want to hone those first aid skills.
