First Aid for All

The Emergency First Response First Aid at Work (Great Britain) course is a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) approved first aid course for training in first aid for the purpose of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. Not just for divers this programme meets the statutory needs of employers in England, Scotland and Wales needing at least one First Aider on the premises.

What is Emergency First Response?
Emergency First Response is an innovative CPR/first aid program. Primary Care (CPR) prepares you to render aid to those with life-threatening emergencies. Secondary Care (first aid) builds upon the lessons of Primary Care and helps you assist those in need when Emergency Medical Services are either delayed or unavailable. It is a requirement for students in the PADI Rescue and Divemaster courses to have current first aid certification and the EFR course can be tailor-made for that purpose but non divers will also benefit from this comprhensive first aid course.

Primary Care (CPR)
Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) teaches you how to deal with emergencies that are immediately life-threatening. You will focus on primary care through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice to make sure you have the knowledge, understanding and confidence to use your skills. Here are the Primary Care (CPR) skills:

  • Scene Assessment
  • Barrier Use
  • Primary Assessment
  • Rescue Breathing
  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
  • Serious bleeding management
  • Shock management
  • Spinal injury management

You may also participate in an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training component, learn how to help a conscious choking adult and have an emergency oxygen use orientation. (Extra module)

Secondary Care (first aid)
Secondary Care (first aid) covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening or when local EMS is unavailable or delayed. You focus on secondary assessment and first aid through knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice. The Secondary Care (first aid) skills are:
