First aid and CPR are good skills for anyone involved in adventure sports – just in case. And, you need these skills for the PADI Rescue Diver course.
The fun part about Emergency First Response training is learning serious medical emergency response skills in an upbeat, positive environment. You gain confidence that you are prepared to help in an emergency.
What You'll Learn
- BLS (Basic Life Support), CPR and rescue breathing at the layperson level
- AED (Automated External Defibrillator) use
- Preventing and caring for shock
- Spinal injury management
- Use of barriers to reduce disease transmission risk
- Basic first aid and first aid kit considerations
Through a combination of independent study and skill practice with your Instructor, you’ll build the confidence and skills to provide basic emergency care. The Primary and Secondary Care Manual and video on DVD preview emergency scenarios and provide step-by-step skill demonstrations.
After completing Primary and Secondary Care, take PADI Rescue Diver and Emergency Oxygen Provider courses. Together, these three courses round out your ability to handle scuba diving emergencies.
