Emergency First Response (EFR) Courses

Emergency First Response training focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn simple to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a nonstressful learning environment. All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you to start learning right away.

EFR courses meet the CPR and first aid training requirements for the Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings. Emergency First Response courses are flexible in design to accommodate scheduling and training needs. They can be taught together or alone in any combination.

  • Primary Care (CPR) – This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies. You’ll practice eight skills for aiding patients who aren’t breathing, have no heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, may be in shock or who may have serious bleeding. You’ll learn how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.

  • Secondary Care (First Aid) – Because 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 eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm. You’ll learn to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.

  • EFR Refresher – It’s a good idea to refresh your CPR and first aid skills every 24 months, and that’s what the EFR Refresher course is designed to do. Focusing on key skills, the course allows you to stay up-to-date and ready to lend aid when needed.

How we strated doing what we do

How we strated doing what we do

Life Skills was started by Marius and Madelein Wolfaardt who have been working with youth and children since 2004. We realized that there are big gaps for kids to breach while growing up, moving from primary to high school and from high school to university/ college or getting a job. These changes can be daunting to a child or teenager and the choices they make in these critical phases of their lives, shape their future. The importance of teaching kids and teens life skills have grown exponentially and as times change, we need to change along with it. Now, more than ever, we see the big need for emotional intelligence and coaching people towards personal development.

This is ultimately our goal, to help people move their personal stumbling blocks out of the way, whatever it may be, to enable them to grow personally and live a fulfilling life in their full potential.
