In diving, we are trained to lessen the chance of accidents and emergencies, but as in any sport, there are inherent risks. As you advance through your diving career, it is a great idea to possess a skill set that helps you manage these incidents if they occur. The Emergency First Response (EFR) course is the training you need to attain these skills. Plus, the course is a pre-requisite for the Rescue Diver course which, in turn, is a pre-requisite for the Master Diver certification level, the highest non-professional rating possible for recreational divers.
The EFR course will teach you Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid). Also, the course teaches students how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). This certification is good for two years, after which students will need to take the EFR refresher course.
Students recieve an eLearning code when registering for the course. The eLearning must be completed before meeting for the practical, hands on portion. We meet for one evening for the practical component. Private classes are available upon request.
There are no set age or prior certification requirements for this course.
Course: $159 includes the eLearning, practice session and certification.
Privately on request.
