PADI EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE
Many divers take the PADI Emergency First Response courses to meet Diving program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. However, most have also found the Emergency First Response (EFR) program to be important in every day life. They have taken a significant step in emergency preparedness, and feel confident that they can provide emergency care should an emergency situation arise. With an EFR course, you'll be ready to help that buddy in need. If you really want to hone those first aid skills, Air Diving Academy Bali can take you all the way to Emergency First Responder Trainer.
WHY EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE?
Emergency First Response (EFR) is the fastest-growing international CPR, Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and First Aid training organization. Dedicated to training the lay rescuer, EFR courses encompasses adult, child and infant CPR skills, provides AED and First Aid training, and feature an outstanding First Ai at Work component. The company’s award-winning programs and state-of-the-art training materials make it a favorite among divers around the world.

The Emergency First Response program meets requirements for CPR and First Aid in the workplace (OSHA Guideline 29 CFR 1910.151), and incorporates the latest procedures for emergency patient care. Other organizations that recognize EFR as meeting their requirements are United States Coast Guard, The Boy Scouts of America, and the American Council on Exercise (ACE), to name a few.
WHAT DO I NEED TO START?
- No dive certification required
- No minimum age limit
WHAT WILL I DO?
The course incorporates independent study to prepare you for a classroom and hands-on skill development session with your instructor. You will learn the same patient care techniques used by medical professionals, but at a lay person level. These techniques include, but are not necessarily limited to: CPR for adult, child and infant, use of Automated External Defibrillator, choking, splinting, illness assessment, emergency oxygen administration, etc.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Give us a day for just the Adult Care course. If you also opt for Child and Infant Care, give us two days and we'll make sure you get the whole monty. The EFR Trainer Course is open to everyone and requires two full days of training.
