First Response Program is PADI's CPR and First Aid certification and several courses are available. All are
non-diving courses, suitable for divers and non-divers, young and old alike. You will receive training

The course is split into two parts:
Primary Care (CPR)
Learn rescue breaths, CPR and revival techniques.
Secondary Care (First Aid)
First aid for many common injuries.
The Emergency First Response course:
- Follows protocols from the Basic Life Support (BLS) Working Group
of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).

teach it at our facility in Malapascua or at your business anywhere on
