Emergency First Response gives you the tools you need to perform CPR and First Aid. Whether you’re a diver or a non-diver, Emergency First Response prepares you to properly handle potentially life-threatening situations.
What do I need to start?
- No dive certification required
- No minimum age limit
What will I do?
Most comprehensive programs are composed of two core modules that can be taught in tandem or as stand-alone courses: Emergency First Response – Primary Care and Emergency First Response – Secondary Care. Together, these courses proved extensive instruction in CPR and First Aid, as well as providing optional (yet recommended) Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and Emergency Oxygen sections.
How long will it take?
- Depending on the amount of home study, the Primary and Secondary courses maybe completed in as little as four hours. This will also depend on where you plan to take the emergency class. Some providers prefer to work individually with students, which can increase the amount of time needed to complete the course.
