Rescue / EFR

Want to be ready in an emergency? Then this program is for you! The PADI Emergency 1st Response program covers basic training for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency care. In addition, it's a medically based program covering primary care, secondary care and treatments following national consensus guidelines.

The program is designed for divers and non divers, and also meets the CPR and first aid prerequisite for earning your PADI Rescue Diver rating.

So if you're seeking CPR/first aid training to meet a diving program requirement or for personal enhancement, then just give American Pro Diving Center one day and we'll do the rest

The PADI Rescue Diver program develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and render first aid. The program is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver. PADI Rescue Diver (or equivalent) certification is also a prerequisite for all PADI leadership programs.

To get into this program, you will need to be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent) and must be at least 12 years old.

You will also need to have successfully completed the Emergency 1st Response program or a sanctioned program in CPR within the past 24 months.
