When should you learn PADI EFR?

Emergency first response course is not as common as other diving courses among recreational divers. You do not need this certification to become a better diver but you will be able to properly save lives in times of emergency as the name suggested.

The course follows global standards on primary and secondary care. You will go through different scenarios to learn what should be done to protect and save lives. You’ll learn how to administer CPR with a special mannequin. You’ll also get a chance to practice bandaging and splinting.

This certification is important to those who want to pursue the next level of scuba diving either a dive master or a master scuba diver. There’s no minimum age limit or diving certification requirement. The most important requirement is your desire to help others and save lives.

After getting the Emergency First Response certification, it is valid for 24 months. If you choose to continue the rescue course or complete the PADI divemaster certification, you’ll need to do so within this period. You can ask our dive professional for advice.
