What you will learn during EFR Course in Phuket

Here’s an overview of what you can expect from the EFR course with ACDC Diving:

Basic First Aid Skills. The course covers basic first aid principles and techniques, including assessing the scene of an emergency, checking for responsiveness, and performing primary and secondary assessments of an injured or ill person. You’ll learn how to control bleeding, manage shock, and treat common injuries such as burns, fractures, and wounds.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). CPR is a critical skill for responding to cardiac emergencies, including heart attacks and sudden cardiac arrest. The EFR course teaches both one-person and two-person CPR techniques for adults, children, and infants, along with the effective use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to restore normal heart rhythms.

Emergency Oxygen Administration. Oxygen therapy is often used in the management of diving-related injuries such as decompression sickness and arterial gas embolism. The EFR course covers the principles of emergency oxygen administration, including recognizing signs of oxygen deficiency, assembling and using oxygen delivery systems, and providing care for a breathing or non-breathing injured diver.

Secondary Care (First Aid). In addition to primary care skills, the EFR course includes training in secondary care, which focuses on providing ongoing care and monitoring for injured or ill individuals until professional medical assistance arrives. This may include managing non-life-threatening injuries, monitoring vital signs, and providing comfort and reassurance to the patient.


Hands-On Training and Scenario-Based Learning. The EFR course emphasizes practical, hands-on training to help participants develop confidence and competence in applying first aid and CPR skills. You’ll engage in scenario-based learning exercises that simulate real-life emergencies, allowing you to practice assessing and responding to various medical situations in a controlled environment.

Certification. Upon successful completion of the course, participants receive an EFR certification card valid for two years. This certification demonstrates proficiency in basic first aid and CPR skills and may be required for certain occupations or activities, such as scuba diving or lifeguarding.

The Emergency First Response course is suitable for individuals of all ages and backgrounds who want to learn essential lifesaving skills. Whether you’re a diver looking to enhance your safety skills, a parent wanting to be prepared for emergencies at home, or a professional seeking certification for your job, the EFR course provides valuable training that can make a difference in critical situations.
