This course is available to both non-divers and divers, and if you don't have any CPR/1st aid training we can offer that prior to running the Instructor course for you. We offer this program as part of our scuba diving internships here in Belize, and as stand alone programs.
The PADI EFR course is recognised by various institutions in the USA, Canada, the UK, and Australia, please check www.emergencyfirstresponse.com for more recognising bodies.
This 2-day course trains you to conduct and certify divers in the Emergency First Response program and ‘Care for Children’ program. The course teaches you how to conduct both primary and secondary care options including oxygen providing and ‘automated external defibrillator’ orientation including first aid for children and is an asset for anyone who works with infants and children. This rating is an essential credential for every dive Instructor in order to independently certify Rescue Divers and meet prerequisites other PADI professional levels of training. PADI Divemasters and Assistant Instructors are also able to undergo EFR Instructor training and independently issue EFR certifications.
Increase your employability and ability to effectively market CPR and 1st aid by increasing your potential audience, even if your providers never use their ‘Care for Children’ training they will find the training invaluable and reassuring.
At Splash Dive Center we're proud to say that we train more responders within our local community in Placencia than other dive centres, and this reinforces our community commitment pledge.
The course includes your EFR Instructor manual and there is a separate application fee to PADI.
