Emergency First Response

Knowing what to do in a medical emergency!
The Emergency First Response (EFR) course teaches you the basic skills required to help in an emergency be it at work, home or when you are out and about.


Phuket Emergency First Response

Accidents are quite unpredictable which is why it’s best to have even just a little bit of knowledge as to how one should react once such occurrences actually happen in the future. Being calm in such situation may be good in order to fully think but it’s far much better if one can both be calm and have a knowledge as to how to act to accordingly.

In this course, you’ll be given the chance to gain knowledge as to what procedure should you be doing in case of emergencies such as the following:

Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies.

Emergency First Response Secondary Care (First Aid) teaches you to assist injured or ill patients by offering first aid and support while waiting for Emergency Medical Service (EMS) personnel.

The EFR course is a 1 day course consisting of theory skill development and scenario practice. EFR course is one of the requirements for starting your Rescue Diver Course.
