All Courses use a combination of Knowledge Development, Skill Development and Scenario Practice to make sure you have the knowledge, understanding and confidence to use your skills if you ever need to do so.

The Emergency First Response course is valid and a PADI requirement of your PADI Rescue course if you are a diver.

We ask that you have read the course manual prior to starting the course and have completed the Knowledge reviews found at the end of the manual – these will be reviewed on the day.

A Small final Exam on Primary and Secondary Care takes place at the end of the Day – this is simply multiple choice and by the end of the day will be straight forward as we will cover all the points in detail during the day.
