Emergency First Response

CPR and First Aid: Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care

First Aid

Basic first aid and CPR skills are not only something every diver should have, they are something every person should have. How long has it been since you updated your first aid/CPR training? (Have you ever even been trained in these critical skills?)

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.

Emergency First Response is a PADI affiliate that specializes in teaching these lifesaving skills – and they’re for anyone, not just divers. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors!

The Fun Part

The fun part about Emergency First Response training is learning serious medical emergency response skills in an upbeat, positive environment. You gain the confidence that you are prepared to help in an emergency.

Fortunately, Wet Set Scuba offers this training on a regular basis. It’s an important prerequisite for Rescue Diver and leadership training — and you can take it in conjunction with our Oxygen Provider course.
