  • Help participants remember appropriate emergency care procedures during time of need
  • Encourage them to apply those procedures by assisting those needing emergency care.
EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care - guidelines produced through a consensus process of practicing professionals in the emergency medical field. Educationally, the courses reflect a well-researched instructional design for this type of training.

5. Rescue Diver

The PADI Rescue Diver course is an important and crucial step in expanding a divers knowledge and experience beyond a recreational level. The nature and context of the course is demanding and serious but at the same time, fun and rewarding.

Rescue Diver training expands the basic problem prevention and accident management skills divers learn beginning with the Open Water Diver course. At the Rescue Diver level, divers are ready to learn to manage more complex dive emergencies and to apply direct intervention techniques to assist others in an emergency. By its nature, the course is demanding, though realistic in its conduct, content and approach. Although the nature and context in which rescue training may be used is serious, the course is an enjoyable challenge that builds diver confidence.

This course takes a flexible, conceptual approach to rescue - a rescuer's relative size and strength, for example, as well as environmental factors, may dictate or influence what rescue technique will be most effective.

The course water training sessions develop divers' foundational skills, which they adapt to their personal differences and needs. Skill development encourages divers to experiment, learning to capitalize on their strengths, recognize their limitations and consider these in emergency situations. Divers learn to first think about the options available for handling an emergency, and then act using their appraisal of the best method for the situation.

It expands your knowledge past that of any previous course enabling you to gain valuable experience and work in the world of diving.
