emergency first responder instructor
CPR and first aid skills are lifesaving skills that are important to everyone, not just scuba divers. Over the years, demand for trained professionals has increased dramatically and now most employers require a number of staff to be trained in CPR/ First aid. The Care for Children compliments the EFR and is essential to all childcare workers.

The Emergency First Responder Instructor course focuses on giving additional training to already qualified first responders and is based on internationally recognized emergency care guidelines.

EFR courses make learning easy by providing students a comfortable environment to practice their emergency care skills and leave feeling confident and ready to help someone in need.
