Emergency First Response Instructor

To become a PADI Instructor you will have to be an EFR Instructor, but you do not necessarily have to wait until then to become a rescue professional: you can complete this training well before or directly during your course to become a PADI Instructor.
CPR and First Aid are fundamental skills that are important to everyone. As an Emergency First Response Instructor, you will teach skills based on internationally recognized emergency care guidelines, and you can offer EFR courses to anyone: adults and children, whether they are underwater or not. Through training based on making learning easy, your students will complete the course feeling confident about their new skills, with a view to being ready to help anyone in need.
