Many divers take the EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE courses to meet programme prerequisites for the PADI Rescue Diver or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. However, the EFR course is a worthwhile course for divers and non-divers alike. Emergency First Response teaches participants how to respond to life-threatening emergencies and injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening. Through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice, participants will gain the necessary knowledge to feel confident in their ability to provide the necessary care if and when emergency situations arise. The Emergency First Responder Certification is recognised worldwide.
