CPR and First Aid

First aid and CPR are skills that anyone involved in adventure sports must be familiar with in case of emergencies. These skills are necessary for the PADI Rescue Diver course. Emergency First Response (EFR) is affiliated with PADI, and it specializes in teaching these lifesaving skills for professional-level ratings. This training focuses on building confidence and promoting the willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Majority of PADI instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors. There are no requirements to qualify for the enrollment of Emergency First Response courses other than having a genuine care for other people and the desire to assist in medical emergencies.
