EFR Emergency First Response
CPR and First Aid Classes
& Emergency Oxygen Provider

in Malapascua Island, Cebu & The Philippines

PADI's Emergency 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 in CPR and emergency medical care - invaluable information that every person should know.

A current EFR or equivalent first aid/CPR certification is a pre-requisite for PADI's Rescue Diver, Divemaster, EFR Instructor and Instructor courses.

Emergency First Response EFR

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).
  • Satisfies CAL-OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) CPR requirements
  • Meets CPR requirements for participants seeking certification through the American Council on Exercise.

This course may be appropriate for your business requirements. We can teach it at our facility in Malapascua or at your business anywhere on Cebu island. Group rates are available.

For Divers: We will also discuss dive-related injuries and the first aid required. This course works very well with the Rescue diver course and we usually try to teach them at the same time.

Care for Children EFR CFC

A special CPR and First Aid course focusing on the needs of children in a medical emergency. A must for all parents and anyone else who spends time around babies and children.

EFR Instructor Course EFRI

Anyone can become an EFR Instructor, diver or non-diver. It's a great way to earn extra income, especially for Divemasters.  It is pre-requisite for the PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course).

PADI Oxygen Provider Course

This is a new course from PADI. It is an entry-level emergency oxygen course that also teaches you how to recognize dive illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen. Though suited for divers, it is a non diving course also available to non-divers. EFR certification is not needed.

You will learn how to

  • Recognize diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen
  • Properly setup equipment
  • Administer emergency oxygen
