Emergency First Response (EFR) is the fastest-growing international CPR, AED and first aid training organization, with more than 31,000 instructors worldwide (including a few at The Dive Bus).
The purpose of the Emergency First Response course is to build confidence and increase willingness to respond to medical emergencies for ‘lay’ rescuers. That’s regular folks like you and us.
EFR courses meet the CPR and first aid training requirements for the PADI Emergency First Responder ((“PADI EFR”) course and all PADI professional-level ratings. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors.
If you’re planning on taking your PADI Rescue Diver course or PADI Divemaster course, a current EFR certification – or other agency equivalent – is a pre-requisite. And even if you’re not, it’s a great skill set to have, regardless of your dive certification level.
If your EFR certification has expired, you can renew it with your The Dive Bus EFR Instructors.
