PADI Emergency First Response

PADI Emergency First Response

There is no minimum age, and there are no dive certification requirements.


The Emergency First Response (EFR), includes both a primary care component (CPR) and secondary care (First Aid). Together, these courses can be used toward your Rescue Diver Certification, although they are valuable courses on their own. The EFR Primary and secondary care courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care, and are geared towards divers and non-divers alike.


The Emergency First Response (EFR) Course consists of 4 parts:

  • Primary Care or Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

  • Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Use

  • Oxygen Use

  • Secondary Care or First Aid

Emergency First Response Primary Care or CPR teaches you how to respond to life-threatening emergencies. This part of the course consists of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice to help you gain the confidence to help if you encounter emergency situations.
