The program of the EFR PADI course is divided into two modules: Primary Care and Secondary Care.
- The Primary Care module covers the essential skills for providing life-saving care in the event of an emergency. This includes how to assess and manage illnesses and injuries, as well as how to perform CPR and use an automated external defibrillator. This module has no minimum age requirement, making it suitable for all family members.
- The Secondary Care module builds on the skills learned in the Primary Care module, focusing on providing care for patients when local emergency services will be delayed. In this module, you will learn how to assess and manage injuries and illnesses, including how to splint wounds, provide oxygen, and deal with choking adults.
The Emergency First Response course with the two modules can be completed in just half a day.
