Emergency First Response (EFR) Certification – Training curriculum 
In the Emergency First Response course, you learn to apply the first responder care following the same priorities used by medical professionals. The course is divided in two sections, Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid).
Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life threatening emergencies. The skills learned are as follows:
  • Scene Assessment
  • Barrier Use (Gloves, Face Mask, Eye shields, etc.)
  • Primary Assessment (Evaluation for any life-threatening conditions needing immediate attention)
  • CPR – Chest Compressions
  • CPR – Chest Compressions combined with Rescue Breathing
  • Automated External Difibrillator Use
  • Serious Bleeding Management
  • Shock Management
  • Spinal Injury Management
  • Conscious/Unconscious Choking Adult
  • Emergency Oxygen Use Orientation
Emergency First Response Secondary Care (First Aid) teaches you to assist injured or ill patients by offering first aid and support when Emergency Medical Services are either delayed or unavailable. The skills learned are as follows:
  • Injury Assessment (physical harm to body like cuts, wounds, burns, temperature related problems like hypothermia and heat stroke, electrical injuries, etc.)
  • Illness Assessment (unhealthy condition of the body like allergies, heart disease, diabetes, poisoning, etc.)
  • Bandaging
  • Splinting for Dislocations and Fractures
This course is a One Day Program (Non-Diving course). Can be done in batches both at our location (up to 20 Persons – we can do the course for smaller batches too), or even at your location. In case of offsite location (i.e location of your choice – other than at our facility) for us, there should be a minimum number per course, which can be worked out depending on what the location is (For example at Delhi/Mumbai etc.), since our costs will vary accordingly.

Also, PFA the basic concept document on training takeaways from “Dive Education”. Please treat this as confidential as no one else is doing something like this and I would like to pioneer any such project. So kindly don’t share this document with anyone, paraphrase and share info only. There is also a document for school groups, a proposal to introduce the sport in schools. Again would request due discretion in dissemination of the material.
