What is Emergency First Response?
Emergency First Response (EFR) is a comprehensive and innovative CPR and first aid program brought to you by the Emergency First Response Corp., a corporate affiliate of PADI.
The comprehensive program is composed of several courses that you can teach together or as stand-alone courses: Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR), Emergency First Response Secondary Care (First Aid) and Emergency First response Care For Children (CPR & First Aid) Together, these courses provide extensive instruction in CPR and first aid, as well as recommended Automated External Defibrillator (AED), emergency oxygen and conscious choking management skills.
The Emergency First Response method of learning is flexible to meet participant and instructor needs. You can choose to guide your participants using a self-study, video guided or instructor led approach. In addition, Emergency First Response has no market restrictions so you can teach it to anyone who wishes to acquire CPR and first aid training. And, anyone who has completed an EFR primary, secondary and Care for Children course ( or recognised equivalent) can become an Emergency First Response Instructor if they are 18 years of age.
