What is it?

This EFR course is combined with the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider (EOP) specialty. (Counts towards PADI Master Scuba Diver)

During the EOP course you will learn and practice the use of the SUCI “Manually Triggered Resuscitator valve” This valve permits the positive pressure ventilation of a non-breathing victim, and is a special part of the SUCI oxygen kit.

The Emergency First Response (EFR) course teaches you how to respond to life-threatening emergencies. The course focuses on primary care through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice ensuring you have the confidence you need to provide care when an emergency situation arises.
