Emergency First Response (EFR)

Would you know what to do in emergency?
 Would you know what to do if a loved one got hurt?
 Here at Galaxsea Divers, we are not just about scuba diving, we teach first aid too!


We believe everyone should have First aid and CPR skills especially if you are involved in adventure sports. You will also need these skills for the PADI Rescue Diver course. 

Here at Galaxsea Divers, we offer a range of EFR courses. Including the full Emergency First Responder course (Primary and Secondary Care), First Aid At Work course, AED (Automated External Defibrillator) use, Emergency Oxygen Provider, and Care for Children.


To enrol in the Emergency First Responder courses, you must:

  • Have the drive to want to be able to assist someone and make a difference in a medical emergency.
  • No age requirement.

What You Learn in the EFR Primary and Secondary Care Courses

  • BLS (Basic Life Support) CPR and rescue breathing at the layperson level
  • AED (automated external defibrillator) use (optional)
  • Preventing and caring for shock
  • Spinal injury management
  • Use of barriers to reduce disease transmission risk
  • Basic first aid and first aid kit considerations

The Learning Materials You Need

All materials for this course are provided and through a combination of independent study and skill practice with an instructor, you’ll build the confidence and skills to provide basic emergency care. The Primary and Secondary Care Manual and video preview emergency scenarios and provide step-by-step skill demonstrations and practice.

The Fun Part

The fun part about Emergency First Response training is learning serious medical emergency response skills while having so much fun! It sounds strange given the nature of what the course it, but you will find this is one of the most rewarding yet fun course you can do. You will gain the confidence that you are prepared to help in an emergency.
