Emergency First Responder

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 start learning right away.

EFR courses meet the CPR and first aid training requirements for the Force-E Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings. 


Who should take this course? 

Anyone who is interested in acquiring or updating CPR and first aid skills. No diving certification required. We also can offer this course to groups, example if your business requires your employees to be CPR and First Aid certified we will come to you with all training materials/mannequins. 

What will you learn? 

While the material taught in this course is serious, it’s taught in a positive, upbeat environment. Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • BLS (Basic Life Support) CPR and rescue breathing at the layperson level
  • AED (automated external defibrillator) use (optional)
  • Preventing and caring for shock
  • Spinal injury management
  • Use of barriers to reduce disease transmission risk
  • Basic first aid: Illness & Injury Assessment, Bandaging, Management of fractures & dislocations, and first aid kit considerations

After you complete the program, you’ll have the skills necessary to help others should it be necessary. By inviting friends or family members to sign up with you, those you care about the most will be better prepared in case of an unexpected emergency.
