Scuba Shack offers two Emergency First Response courses. Frequently, they are combined into one complete program. Scuba Shack does offer instructor training programs for Emergency First Response programs. Contact us for details.

Emergency First Response – Primary Care (CPR)

Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) teaches participants 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 to make sure participants have the confidence in their ability to provide care when emergency situations arise.

Scuba Shack’s Primary Care program includes automated external defibrillator (AED) training and an introduction to emergency oxygen use.

What will I need?
You’ll need the Emergency First Response CPR & AED Participant manual.

What will my commitment be?
The program is completed during one full day (eight hours), or two evenings. The refresher course is four hours. This program is frequently combined with the Emergency First Response Secondary Care (First Aid) program.

What results should I expect?
Any education can be empowering, but first aid training can do something that a class on twentieth century literature can’t. It can help you save a life. Somewhere out there someone is wondering why they should spend their time taking a first aid class. A more appropriate question would be – why not?
