Based on internationally recognized emergency care guidelines, the Emergency First Responder Instructor course is designed to provide additional training to qualified first responders. Through independent study, classroom sessions, and teaching assignments, instructors are prepared to structure, organize, market, promote, and teach Emergency First Responder courses to both divers and non-divers. EFR courses provide a comfortable environment for students to practice their emergency care skills, boosting their confidence to help someone in need.

This course is invaluable for those who wish to continue their education, save time during their IDC, or make themselves more attractive to potential employers. As an Emergency First Response Instructor, you can teach Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care, Care for Children, and Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

The EFR certificate is a prerequisite for all courses beyond the Advanced Open Water course, and the EFR instructor certification is mandatory for your PADI Instructor qualification. During the IDC, allowance is made for course completion, and PADI Divemasters may enroll and attend.
