Emergency First Responder: Primary & Secondary Care with AED

Providing emergency first response care is straightforward, easy to learn, and could potentially save lives. There are so many good reasons to empower yourself, your friends, and family with this important life skill.

The Emergency First Response course is well structured and there is a reference manual (purchased separately) that helps you prepare for the course and to keep for future reference.

This is a one day, non-diving program so everyone is welcome. We offer it at AquaSub every second month.

Do you have a group that wants to become trained in Emergency First Response? Perhaps at your office? We can do that too! With a minimum of 4 participants we can come to your home, office, club or wherever and run this program. Just give us a call at 905-883-3483.
