Emergency First Response - EFR

The Emergency First Response (EFR) Course provides the necessary education and training to make sure that you are confident in your ability to provide someone with aid in the event of a medical emergency. The skills you acquire in the EFR course are important not only in diving, but also in your daily interactions with friends, family, and coworkers. In the EFR course you will learn skills such as Emergency Scene Assessment, CPR, First Aid, Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) use, and introduction to Oxygen Administration. By completing the EFR course, you not only complete the certification necessary for taking the Rescue Diver Course, but you will also meet the First Aid / CPR guidelines for organizations like OSHA, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the Boy and Girl Scouts of America.

Course Tuition:
The Emergency First Responder Course tuition is $165.00 and includes the EFR Instruction Manual, Instructor Fee, use of CPR and First Aid course materials and the use of an Instructional DVD. The EFR course is generally broken into two classroom sessions. For upcoming class dates, check the Course Schedule page and contact Lancaster Scuba Center at 717.39.SCUBA or by email at for any questions about the course or to ask about additional class dates.
