EFR - Emergency First Response Course (First Aid)

It's a fact: first aid training can save lives, whether at a dive site or in every day life. Being able to perform CPR or chest compressions on an unconscious person until emergency medical services arrives can literally mean the difference between life and death. Ask many of our past EFR students who have had to use their skills after witnessing car accidents, strokes, or people falling unconsious outside of the diving world.
