PADI Rescue & Emergency Response (EFR) is not a single course, but rather a comprehensive training program offered by PADI to equip divers with the knowledge and skills necessary to handle emergency situations both underwater and on land. It consists of several courses that can be taken individually or combined!

About The Course

PADI Rescue Diver: This course builds on the skills learned in Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care and teaches divers how to prevent and manage dive emergencies, including unconscious divers, out-of-air situations, and equipment problems. It also covers underwater search and rescue techniques, oxygen administration, and emergency ascents.

EFR Instructor Courses: If you’re interested in teaching EFR courses yourself, you can take the appropriate instructor training course. This will qualify you to teach a variety of EFR programs, including Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care, PADI Rescue Diver, and other specialty courses.

How to Earn your EFR Certification

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. It is because during the course, the way you dive will be changed, in the best possible way. You will learn to identify and prevent problems in the water, become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed.

During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem-solving skills until they become second nature. Even though the course is serious, it still allows lots of fun along the way.

Emergency First Response primary and secondary care training teaches you what to do in the critical moments between when a life-threatening emergency occurs and when emergency medical services arrive.

Learn how to perform CPR, provide first aid that eases pain, assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.

During the water training sessions, you’ll practice handling scenarios such as a leg cramp and assisting a tired diver by role-playing with other students and your instructor.
