PADI Rescue & EFR Course
- Valid for both PADI Rescue & EFR Course and Junior PADI Rescue & EFR Course
- You don’t have to book course date straight away
The PADI Rescue Diver and Emergency First Response combined course can best be described as rewarding and fun. It encourages divers to learn to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well being of other divers. You will learn about self-rescue, diver stress, diving first aid, emergency management, surface and underwater distressed diver response. You will also learn how to deal with missing divers and how to surface an unconscious diver.
In the Emergency First Response (EFR) you will learn primary care, basic first Aid and CPR and secondary care, injury and illness assessment and bandaging. This is all at a reduced rate when combined with the Rescue Diver course.
Although this course is serious, it is an enjoyable way to build your confidence.
