What 's Involved ?

You will meet your EFR Instructor at our dive centre in Patong to watch the EFR training DVD and complete the Knowledge Reviews from the Emergency First Response manual.

You will also be shown various First Aid skills and have the opportunity to practice the techniqes with your Instructor and fellow class-mates. There is a multiple-choice exam to pass as well- but don't worry you'll be taught everything you need to know to get through it.

Finally, your EFR Instructor will setup an example accident scenario so that you can put into practice everything that you've been taught today. This course is conducted in one of our air-conditioned classrooms at the dive centre- there are no swimming pool sessions or open water dives required for this certification.
