First Aid/CPR and Oxygen Provider

efr padi

The Emergency First Response (EFR) Course provides the necessary education and training to make sure that you are confident in your ability to provide someone with aid in the event of a medical emergency. The skills you acquire in the EFR course are important not only in diving, but also in your daily interactions with friends, family, and coworkers. You will learn skills such as Emergency Scene Assessment, CPR, First Aid, Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) use, and introduction to Oxygen Administration. By completing the EFR course, you not only complete the certification necessary for taking the Rescue Diver Course, but you will also meet the First Aid / CPR guidelines for organizations like OSHA, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the Boy and Girl Scouts of America.



This comprehensive program is composed of two core modules that can be taught in tandem or as stand-alone courses: Emergency First Response – Primary Care and Emergency First Response – Secondary Care. Together, these courses provide extensive instruction in CPR and First Aid, as well as providing optional (yet recommended) Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and Emergency Oxygen sections.

EFR courses are acknowledged by ILCOR, the American Heart Association and the United States Coast Guard.

The PADI Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Provider course was designed to fill the void in oxygen first aid training available for the general diving public.

This course represents entry level training designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public, centering on possible dive-related injuries and providing emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and/or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility.

In the most recent PADI dive accident record, less than 33 percent of injured divers 2received emergency oxygen in the field. Few of those received oxygen concentrations approaching the recommended 100 percent.

PADI and all major diving instructional agencies recommend that all divers be qualified to provide 100-percent oxygen in the field to those injured in a dive accident.
