Learn the essentials of First Aid when dealing with diving and non-diving injuries.

Anyone interested in adventure sports should have first aid and CPR training, just in case. This Emergency First Response Course includes both primary and secondary care training, such as CPR, AED, and first aid. These abilities are also required for the PADI Rescue Diver Course.
