PADI Emergency First Response Course 

including AED & O2 training for Scuba Divers

Course overview

This course is an introduction to first aid for scuba divers and is certified by Emergency First Response (EFR) which is PADI's recognised first aid part of the company.  The course is split into 2 sections Emergency First Response Primary Care which includes teaching you how to use a defibrillator and then Emergency First Response Secondary care which is what we think of as the traditional first aid.

Both sections teach participants how to respond to real emergencies. The course uses combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice to make sure participants have the confidence in their ability to provide care when emergency situations arise. We also include practical AED and Oxygen providing training which will help scuba divers on PADI Rescue Diver courses along with PADI Dive Masters and PADI instructors.

Paul from Green Box is a PADI instructor along with teaching First Aid so he can complete your PADI Rescue Diver and PADI Dive Master Courses as well.

Who is this course for?

This is a great course for scuba divers qualified under any banner. We believe that everyone should have a basic level of first aid training. We have trained teenagers  right up to pensioners and we see the confidence that it give to people when they have completed the course. We understand that people are nervous and unsure when they start - we quickly get over this to enable you to learn in a fun and inspiring environment.

This course is great for divers who need

a first aid qualification for their courses.
