Minimum Age



1 Day

About the Course

Emergency First Response primary and secondary care training teaches you what to do in the critical moments between when a life-threatening emergency occurs and when emergency medical services arrive.

The Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) course combines flexible online self-study and in-person training. It's your course at your pace. Practice a skill until you feel confident before moving on to the next one.

Learn how to perform CPR, provide first aid that eases pain, assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.

We also look at Defibs (AED's) and ensure you leave this course comfortable and prepared to administer basic life saving first aid. We focus in on general first aid here and not just dive related. If you want to learn dive specifics then ensure you join us for the PADI Rescue Diver course.
