EFR & Care For Children Instructor Course
Why Become an EFR Instructor?
There are many reasons for becoming an Emergency First Response Instructor.
Consider the following:
• No marketing restrictions other than those imposed by local regulation
• Performance based training – meaning effective use of instructor time through participant independent study
• High quality instructor and participant materials incorporating state of the art instructional design principles
• Up-to-date with current medical guidelines for layperson emergency care
• International in scope, allowing for local or regional variation of skill technique
• AED training incorporated into basic course offerings
• Simplification of teaching emergency care as mandated by research findings
• Divides primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) into two separate courses, conforming to the international call for simplification of layperson emergency care training
How Do I Become an EFR Instructor?
If you are a PADI Divemaster (or higher) without a CPR and first aid instructor certification, take the full Emergency First Response Instructor Training course conducted by a PADI Course Director who is also EFR Instructor Trainer.
If you are a PADI Assistant Instructor (or higher) with a CPR and first aid instructor certification, you can take the Instructor Crossover Programme from an Emergency First Response Instructor Trainer.
Note: For both of these options, you must successfully complete the Emergency First Response Instructor exam.
