The Emergency First Response™ Instructor certification allows you to teach and certify students in internationally recognized courses for CPR and First Aid.
EFR Instructors have an opportunity to target high-risk industries that often require the workforce to be certified in CPR, AED, First Aid, and Childcare.
Learning how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and administer basic first aid are both lifesaving skills.
As such, Primary Care deals with emergencies that are immediately life threatening.
Whereas, Secondary Care (basic first aid) covers injuries and illnesses that are not immediately life threatening.
Assessment first aid is also appropriate for first responders when local emergency medical services (EMS) are unavailable or delayed.
Like all PADI scuba courses, the Emergency First Response Instructor course is performance based. Even so, most instructor candidates will achieve the fourteen (14) hours of required training in less than two full days.
Note: As with all Emergency First Response courses, the price includes all study materials required for training and the two year certification.
