PADI Emergency First Response – EFR
The First Aid Course, or EFR, focuses on building confidence in non-professional first responders and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn easy-to-follow steps for emergency care and practice applying techniques in a stress-free learning environment. All courses are supported with self-study manuals, videos, and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you to start learning immediately.
The First Aid or EFR course meets the CPR training requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and for all professional levels. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors
The following EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care.

What will you learn?
- Primary Care (CPR) – This course teaches you the steps and techniques to handle emergencies in which life is in danger. You will practice eight techniques to help patients who are not breathing, have no pulse, may have a spinal cord injury, may be in shock, or may have severe bleeding. You will learn how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient so that you have the best chance of survival while you wait for emergency medical services to arrive.
- Secondary Care (First Aid) – Since many medical conditions are not life threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to provide first aid that reduces pain and the risk of suffering more damage. You will learn to assess a wide variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandages and immobilizations.
- Child Care – This course allows participants to learn, practice, and apply specific emergency care techniques to help infants and children in a medical emergency. It is designed for people who work with children or who are likely to have to respond to emergencies involving the youngest. This course is often integrated with the Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) courses.
- First Aid at Work – In some areas, such as Britain, Australia and Canada, government regulations require more extensive first aid and CPR training for the job. Work First Aid programs designed for these areas include additional topics and techniques to meet the requirements while following EFR’s easy-to-follow training method.
- Refresh from EFR – It’s a good idea to refresh your first aid and CPR techniques every 24 months, and that’s what the EFR Refresh course is designed for. Focusing on key techniques, the course allows you to stay up-to-date and ready to lend help when needed.
