Emergency First Response

Emergency First Response  Image

This one-day course gives you all the tools you’ll need to perform CPR and First Aid in an emergency.

Interested in the lifesaving side of diving? If so, our Emergency First Response course is a good thing to have under your belt. It gives you all the tools you need to perform CPR and First Aid. You don’t need any diving qualifications to sign up, either. In fact, you don’t have to be a diver at all. The course prepares you to handle potentially life-threatening situations correctly – whether you’re in or out of the water. And if you are a scuba diver, it’s a great skill to have, just in case.

Our Emergency First Response course teaches you serious emergency response skills in an upbeat environment. A mix of independent study and hands-on experience, the comprehensive programme is split in to two core modules – Primary Care and Secondary Care. It can be taught in tandem or as stand-alone courses. You’ll learn...

  • Basic first aid
  • Basic Life Support (BLS) CPR and rescue breathing
  • Preventing and caring for shock
  • Spinal injury management
  • Use of barriers to reduce the risk of transmission diseases

To help develop your skills on the Emergency First Response course, there’s a Primary and Secondary Care manual. You’ll also watch a DVD, which shows emergency scenarios and step-by-step demonstrations. Here at Ocean College, we also provide optional, but recommended, Automated External Defibrillator (AED) CPR and Emergency Oxygen Administration training. Once you’ve ticked this course off, you can go on to develop your lifesaving skills further. For example, you could become an Emergency First Response Instructor so you can teach Emergency First Response and Care for Children.

Depending on the time of year, the thermometer hovers between 24°C and 39°C and the water temperature is 22°C to 26°C – so diving is great year-round.
