2017 Dive Interns; EFR + Rescue Diver Course
Essential training for our 2017 Dive Interns is well underway at Latchi Watersports. They are studying Emergency Frist Response “EFR” and taking the Rescue Diver Course.
EFR – Emergency First Response
Emergency First Response training focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn simple-to-follow steps for emergency care. And, practice applying skills in a non-stressful learning environment. All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you to start learning right away.
As well as a practical examination (see the photos below)
EFR courses meet the CPR and first aid training requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors.
Rescue Diver Course
Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water. And, become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed.
During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practising problem-solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun. It’s serious but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
PADI (Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months.
You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course. Your instructor may also offer the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider specialty diver course at the same time.
How can you start learning now?

You progress through five knowledge development sections using a web-based system that lets you learn at your own pace through an easy-to-use, interactive program.
