DIVE INTO A WORLD
OF ADVENTURE



Emergency
First Responder
DURATION: One day course includes classroom-based theory, skill development and practical scenarios
PREREQUISITES:
  • None
COST: £135.00
NEXT COURSE:
Emergency First Responder is a must-have course for divers and non-divers alike. Prepare yourself to deal with life-threatening injuries, whether they occur at home with a family member or at the dive site with your dive buddy.

Primary Care (CPR) teaches you how to deal with emergencies that are immediately life-threatening whilst Secondary Care (First Aid) covers injuries and illnesses that are not immediately life-threatening or when the emergency services are unavailable or delayed. You will focus on primary care through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice to make sure you have the knowledge, understanding and confidence to use your skills.

Participants are taught how to respond and deal with emergencies through a combination of knowledge and skill development. Once you have mastered the skills required for both primary and secondary care, you will be lead through a number of realistic scenarios where you get to put your new skills and knowledge to practice in a controlled environment. These scenarios give you the confidence to administer the most effective and appropriate care in the event of a genuine emergency - not to mention being a lot of fun!

This course is a pre-requisite for PADI Rescue Diver, Divemaster and Instructor level training.


EFR & Oxygen Admin - Be a life saver!




In order to qualify as a PADI Rescue Diver, it is neccessary to have undertaken first Aid training including primary & secondary care within the last two years.

We recommend the Emergency First Responder course which can be combined with your Rescue Diver course. The Emergency First Responder course gives you the tools you need to perform CPR and First Aid. Whether you're a diver or a non-diver, Emergency First Responder prepares you to handle potentially life-threatening situations. We also recommend taking an oxygen administration course so that you have the skills to safety and competently handle and emergency oxygen kit.

Fancy seeing something different in the dark? This Thursday our friends from Linear Guidance Illumination - LGi will be at Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre demonstrating their illuminated marker systems. Used by the police and the military, as well as many commercial organisations, maybe this is how we should mark out all our routes and features for safer low-light and dark diving conditions? Come along and see what you think! Cheers, Pete
