First Aid and CPR are good skills to have for those involved in adventure sports, for whatever might happen. You will need those techniques for the PADI Rescue Diver course. Emergency First Response is a PADI course specialized in teaching those techniques to anyone, not just divers.
The fun part of Emergency First Response training is that you learn medical skills in case of a serious emergency in an upbeat and positive environment. You gain the confidence you need to be prepared to help in an emergency.
Through a combination of studying on your own and hands-on exercises with an instructor, you will build the confidence and skills to provide basic emergency care. The Primary and Secondary Care Manual and DVD video show emergency scenarios and provide step-by-step skill demonstrations.
