If you would like to learn first aid or simply need this qualification for further advancement in the PADI system and would like to learn in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere - look no further! The course is based on internationally recognised medical guidelines for emergency care and is broken into two components; Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid). Emergency First Response (EFR) is the world's fastest growing international first aid and CPR training organisation and is internationally recognised.

Divers might wish to enrol on the PADI Oxygen Administration speciality, which compliments the EFR course by learning about decompression sickness, near drowning and lung over-expansion injuries and how to provide emergency oxygen, now a legal requirement.  
         
  CARE FOR CHILDREN - EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE COURSE 
  Course Outline    
  If you have children of your own, or interact regularly with children, you know that accidents happen on a frequent basis. Fortunately, most incidents are insignificant resulting in simple scrapes and bruises. Children and parents, generally accept that minor injuries and illnesses are part of growing up. However, there are times when children suffer from significant medical problems. Road traffic accidents, serious falls, choking, serious bleeding, near drowning, poisoning and allergic reactions can be very frightening and devastating for children, parents and rescuers alike. By becoming and Emergency Responder and learning how to handle situations involving injured or ill children, you are empowered to make a difference and offer assistance that may improve a child's chances of a positive recovery. frist aid

  OXYGEN PROVIDER COURSE 
   
  Oxygen, water and food are fundamental to life. Of these three basic essentials, the deprivation of oxygen leads to death most rapidly. Oxygen therapy is therefore useful or necessary to treat many injuries, diseases and intoxications that interfere with normal oxygenation of the blood or tissues. Knowing how to activate emergency services and provide emergency oxygen are the two most important first aid steps for treating a diver suspected of suffering a near drowning or decompression illness (lung over-expansion injuries and decompression sickness) Emergency oxygen given to divers suffering from decompression illness may reduce damage to oxygen starved tissues and bubble size. Medical case histories show repeatedly that prompt delivery of 100 percent oxygen make a dramatic difference in the diver's immediate condition and in the effectiveness of subsequent treatment. Along with the legal requirement to have oxygen available at divesites, first responders must know how to provide oxygen in an emergency oxygen provider
