Emergency First Response and Care For Children

Emergency First Response and Care For ChildrenWhether you’re a diver or a non-diver, the Emergency First Response and Care For Children courses gives you the skills that you will need to perform CPR and First Aid.

Many divers take the Emergency First Response courses to meet program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. However, most have also found the EFR program to be important in every day life. They have taken a significant step in emergency preparedness, and feel confident that they can provide care should an emergency situation arise.

The Emergency First Response program meets requirements for CPR and First Aid in the workplace (OSHA Guideline 29 CFR 1910.151), and incorporates the latest procedures for emergency patient care.
