EFR Instructor Course

EFR courses make learning easy by providing a comfortable environment to practise emergency care skills. Your students finish the course feeling confident with their new skills and ready to help someone in need.


An EFR Instructor rating is required to become a PADI Instructor, but you don’t have to wait until you’re ready to go pro.


What you learn


Your role as an EFR Instructor is to be a coach that creates a positive learning environment. Along with learning how to structure and organize EFR courses, you practise:


  • Presenting course content.

  • Demonstrating the skills

  • Encouraging self-discovery in students.

  • Evaluating student understanding and skill mastery during hands-on skills practice.

  • Managing effective scenario-based learning experiences.

What you do


There is a pre-course self-study component: you'll need to study some physiology before the course start (nothing excessive - the very basics). During the course you'll hone your CPR and First Aid skills up to demonstration quality, you'll give teaching presentations from topics in the EFR courses and we'll cover the steps and requirements how to organize an EFR course.





  • Have completed a sanctioned course in CPR&First Aid within the past 24 months

  • Minimum 18 years old


If you have not completed the Care for Children course, you can complete it as a part of your EFR Instructor course.

From your EFR and CFC courses you should already have the following, if you do not, you will need to purchase them:


  • Emergency First Response Participant Manual

  • Emergency Care at a Glance


The materials are best purchased as a EFR Instructor Start-up Pak. The EFR Instructor Start Up Pak includes all required materials. Please contact us for the current prices. We offer preferential prices for EFR Instructor candidates who do the course with us.





The EFR Instructor course is usually run as a two and a half day program: an introduction session one evening and two full days. Courses typically run in conjunction with the PADI IDC but can be arranged at other times as well.



Course fee


Please contact us for the current fees.

CPR and first aid are key skills that are important to everyone, not just scuba divers. You don't have to be a doctor or a medical professional to teach Emergency First Response programs. You don't have to be a diver, either.


As an Emergency First Response Instructor, you teach skills based on internationally recognized emergency care guidelines, and you can offer courses to anyone.

Your role as an EFR Instructor is to create a positive, non-stressfull learning environment.

EFR Courses are supported by high quality student and instructor materials: instructor and student manuals and videos.
