PADI Emergency First Response Instructor course
What can I do?
As an Emergency First Response Instructor, you can conduct Emergency First Response Primary (CPR) and Secondary Care (first aid) courses. The PADI EFR Instructor course is also open to non-divers, so EFR Instructors can offer CPR/1st aid and secondary care training to family, friends and work colleagues.
What do I need to start?
Emergency First Response certification or qualifying certification from another certification organization
What will I do?
You’ll learn how to conduct the Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) and Emergency First Response Secondary Care (first aid) courses. You’ll also learn to conduct the recommended Automated External Defibrillator (AED), emergency oxygen and conscious choking management skills.
How long will it take?
The PADI Emergency First Response Instructor Course with 'Care for Children' takes approximately twelve hours.
This 2-day course trains you to conduct and certify divers in the Emergency First Response program and ‘Care for Children’ program. The course teaches you how to conduct both primary and secondary care options, including oxygen providing and ‘automated external defibrillator’ orientation and first aid for children (a real asset for any one who works with infants and children). This rating is an essential credential for every dive Instructor in order to independently certify Rescue Divers and meet prerequisites for other PADI professional levels of training. PADI Divemasters and Assistant Instructors are also able to undergo EFR Instructor training and independently issue EFR certifications.
Emergency First Response ‘Care for Children’ Instructor
In recent years the demand for trained providers in CPR/1st Aid skills has increased dramatically, and now most employers require a number of staff to be trained as CPR/1st aid providers. From a social consideration, market research studies have indicated that in most households at least 1 member of the family is or wants to be trained in CPR/1st Aid training. The ‘Care for Children’ program compliments the EFR ‘Primary and Secondary Care’ and is essential to all childcare workers, supervisors of children or infants and all parents. Increase your employability and ability to effectively market CPR and 1st aid by increasing your potential audience. Even if your providers never use their ‘Care for Children’ training, they will still find the training invaluable and reassuring.
The PADI EFR Instructor course takes 2 days to complete. The prerequisites for the program include being 18 years of age and EFR ‘Primary and Secondary Care’ provider (or equivalent) qualified. As a stand alone program, this costs $250 course fee + $70 Instructor manual + $79 application fee to PADI.
