Koh Samui Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care Course

This course is not a diving course. However, all the knowledge and skills can be useful in everyday life. This course is also a prerequisite for the PADI Rescue Diver course.

The course was developed based on the Basic Life Support Guidelines, submitted by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation.
During the EFR course you will learn how to act in emergency situations and provide first aid. Training is conducted in an interesting and cognitive manner.
You will learn the main resuscitation techniques by watching a special training video for the EFR course.
Under the guidance of your instructor you will study and demonstrate the skills to provide primary and secondary medical care, and also take part in several scenarios simulating an emergency event where you will act as a rescuer.
