The Emergency First Response program focuses on building self-confidence among people who want to help in a medical emergency and strengthening their willingness to actually take action and provide help in case of emergency. Students learn easy-to-follow emergency care steps and practice using the appropriate skills in a stress-free learning environment. In order to promote learning, there are various materials for self-study for all courses - manuals (workbooks), videos (DVD) and "Quick Reference Cards" (cards for quick reference); you can start learning right away.

The EFR courses meet the CPR and first aid requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and all professional PADI levels. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors .

The following EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care.


  • Primary Care (CPR) - This course teaches you the steps and techniques to provide adequate help in life-threatening emergencies. You will learn and practice eight skills to help patients who are not breathing, who do not have a heartbeat, who may have suffered a spinal injury, may be in shock, or have excessive bleeding. In particular, you will learn the CPR technique and how to continually monitor a patient's condition to give them every possible chance to survive while waiting for the emergency medical assistance to arrive (paramedic, emergency doctor, etc. ).

  • Secondary Care - Many medical circumstances are not life-threatening, the arrival of emergency medical care is sometimes delayed, or such help is not available at all. Therefore, this course teaches you how to provide first aid to make pain more bearable and reduce the risk of further harm. In this course you will learn how to assess various injuries and illnesses, and you will practice dressing and splinting.

  • Care for Children - In this course, participants learn and practice skills that enable them to help children and adolescents with a medical emergency. The course is aimed at people who deal with children in their daily work or who are likely to be called in to help in emergencies by children and adolescents. This course is often integrated into the EFR Primary Care and Secondary Care courses.

  • CPR & AED - The focus of this course is training in CPR and teaching participants how to use an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED). If there are workplace regulations or legal regulations for such training, the CPR & AED course can be used for this. This course is often integrated into First Aid at Work Programs.

  • First Aid at Work - In some countries, such as the UK, Australia and Canada, there are legal requirements that require companies to train their CPR and first aid staff. The First Aid at Work program was developed specifically for these countries and includes additional topics and skills to meet such provisions; Of course, the EFR principle of simple learning also applies here.

  • EFR Refresher - It is a good idea for emergency responders to refresh their CPR and First Aid skills every 24 months, and this is exactly what the EFR refresher program is designed for. Only the most important skills are at the center, and participation ensures that you stay up-to-date and ready to help if necessary.
