Emergency First Response is PADI’s first aid and CPR course. It teaches you to provide emergency care for someone in need and is based on internationally recognised medical guidelines for emergency care.

This course is suitable for divers and non divers.

We also run the HSE Emergency First Aid at WorkCourse for those requiring a formal qualification for their workplace.

To qualify as a PADI Rescue Diver, Divemaster, or Instructor you need to have current CPR training and the first part of this course fulfils this requirement.

Why learn with Aquanaut?

Alongside our First Aid specific company First Aid Basics, the Aquanaut Instructor Training Team all have actual extensive experience teaching the EFR courses in both diving and workplace environments.

Our focus is on teaching you life saving first aid that is potentially useful to you in every day life, at home, in your work place. Our focus is not just to tick a box to fulfil a course pre-requisite.
