 How can I continue my adventure?

Once you have completed the Emergency First Response Adult CPR First Aid Course, you can look at completing the Emergency First Response Care for Children Course, or combine the 2 courses together. We also offer the Emergency First Response Instructor Course for those who want to move on and teach the adult and child care courses.

Once you have completed your EFR course, and are certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you can begin your Rescue Diver Course.

As First Aid/CPR training is a prerequisite for the PADI Rescue Diver Course, this makes the EFR Course ideal to meet this criteria. The PADI Rescue Diver course teaches Divers how to prepare for and deal with diving emergencies, including diver accident management.
