Emergency First Responder Instructor

The Course

CPR and first aid are key skills that are important to everyone, not just scuba divers. As an Emergency First Response Instructor, you teach skills based on internationally recognised emergency care guidelines, and you can offer courses to anyone. The great thing about EFR courses is they make learning easy by providing a comfortable environment to practice emergency care skills. Your students finish the course feeling confident with their new skills and ready to help someone in need. An EFR Instructor rating is required to become a PADI Instructor.

Course Outline

Your role as an EFR Instructor is to be a coach that creates a positive learning environment. Along with learning how to structure and organise EFR courses, you practice:

  • Presenting course content
