Emergency First Response (EFR)

Emergency First Response is one of the fastest-growing international CPR, AED, and first aid training organizations. With more than 56,000 instructors worldwide, Emergency First Response is backed by 48 years of experience in the development and delivery of instructional courses, training materials, and educational curricula.

This course can be offered both independently from any diving certification or in conjunction with any of our courses for a nominal additional fee. We encourage you to partner with a member of our professional staff on how to get certified in this highly beneficial certification for both in and out of the water.

Emergency First Response courses follow the emergency considerations and protocols as developed by the members of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).

Focused on training the lay rescuer, the Emergency First Response approach to training builds confidence in lay rescuers and increases their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency by teaching them the skills they need in a non-stressful learning environment. Participants are also given as much practice as necessary to master and retain these skills.
