Emergency First Response is a training focusing on building confidence in dive rescues and increasing the willingness to respond in emergencies.
In diving, we are trained to lessen the chance of accidents and emergencies, but as in any sport, there are inherent risks. It is a great idea to possess these skills that help you manage these incidents if they occur.
The PADI Emergency First Response course is designed to teach lifesaving skills and they are for anyone, not just divers. It consists of 2 parts. The Primary Care (CPR) and the Secondary Care (First Aid), both for adults, children, and infants.
There are no set age or prior certifications for this course and it can be completed in 1 day. This certification is good for 2 years, after which you will need to take the Emergency First Response Refresher Course.
The PADI Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) section teaches participants how to respond to life-threatening emergencies.
The PADI Emergency First Response Secondary Care (First Aid) covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life-threatening.
Having the knowledge and skills you have learned during the PADI Emergency First Response Course gives you the confidence to respond to medical emergencies and this not only in the diving world but in your everyday life too. You will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to deal with a variety of trauma and medical conditions.
