Why Emergency First Response?
Many divers take the Emergency First Response courses to meet program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. However, most have also found the EFR program to be important in every day life. They have taken a significant step in emergency preparedness, and feel confident that they can provide care should an emergency situation arise.

This course is good for divers and non-divers. Being prepared for an emergency is good for everyone. Contact Ocean Enterprises for details how to hold an EFR course at your work place.
