Primary (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid)
EFR courses are based on internationally recognised medical guidelines and training focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. In a non-stressful learning environment, you will learn basic steps for emergency care and practice applying these skills. The course utilises three different modes of learning; knowledge development (self-study manual, video, classroom study), skill development and realistic scenario practice. The course takes 1 full day to complete.
The course covers primary care (CPR) teaching you the steps and techniques used for handling life-threatening emergencies. Subjects covered include; CPR, spinal injury, shock management, serious bleeding, choking. Secondary care (First Aid) is also covered during the course; you will learn how to provide first aid for medical conditions that are non-life threatening. The skills and techniques learnt ease pain and reduce the risk of further harm to the injured party. You will also learn to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.
EFR courses meet the CPR and First Aid training requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and all professional level ratings (e.g. PADI Divemaster, Instructor etc).
