Course content

The following EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care.

  • Primary Care (CPR) – This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies.
  • Secondary Care (First Aid) – Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to provide first aid that eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm.
  • Care for Children – This course allows participants to learn, practice and apply emergency care skills specific to helping infants and children with medical emergencies.
  • CPR & AED – This course focuses on CPR training and teaching participants how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator).

Frequently asked questions

I'm Advanced Open Water Diver, what's the next step?
