Why emergency first response?

Many divers take the Emergency First Response courses to meet program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster.

They have taken a significant step in emergency preparedness, and feel confident that they can provide care should an emergency situation arise.

What do I need to start?

No dive certification required, No minimum age requirements

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.
