During the Emergency First Response Instructor course, you will build on your skill as an Emergency Responder and focus on developing your instructional abilities to teach these skills to others. The EFR Instructor course provides you with the additional training necessary to teach the Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR), Secondary Care (First Aid) and Care for Children courses.
Through a multi-media approach of independent study, classroom sessions and practical teaching assignments, you learn to conduct Emergency First Response courses.
PADI Emergency First Response Instructor course (EFRI) is required for all Instructor candidates taking the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC). And because EFRI isn’t a diving specific first aid course, divers of any level and non-divers can join to become Emergency First Response Instructors.
