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.

  • EFR 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.
  • EFR 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 Care for Children

    The Emergency First Response Care for Children course is an innovative CPR, AED and First Aid training course that teaches participants how to provide emergency care for injured or ill children (ages one to eight) and infants less than one-year-old. Participants learn about the types of medical emergencies that children face, and how they differ from adults.

  • 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.

Prerequisites:

  • Minimum age of 12 years.
  • Completion of all required paperwork.
  • Participants must complete the examination with a minimum passing score of 80 percent.

Aim of the Courses:

  • Entry-level training designed to educate persons in providing BLS (basic life support) techniques to adult victims with life-threatening injuries, while activating the local medical services.
  • Acquire the knowledge and skills needed to provide BLS to adult victims through several first aid techniques that support (or might restore) life.
  • Learn and practice skills needed to provide first aid to adults in non-immediately life-threatening situations (or after having provided BLS in life-threatening situations).
  • Learn several techniques that relieve pain, stop injury from getting worse and determine the type of injury or illness.

SharkSafe Barrier Crowdfunding 2019

Our last challenge is to test the SharkSafe Barrier sand anchors for deep sand sea substrates, so that we can anchor on both rocky and deep sand substrates.

For testing the SharkSafe Barrier anchors on sand we need your help to hire the boats, buy the material, pay the commercial divers and monitor the results.

You can make a difference!

Please support us in our effort to keep both people and sharks safe, by replacing sharks cull with a more sustainable alternative!
