Increase Your Confidence With Rescue Courses

Bonaire is world famous for shore diving and most people dive as independent buddy teams; sometimes in remote areas. Do you know what to do in a diving emergency? Learn the skills necessary to handle the unexpected and become a more confident diver with EFR, Rescue Diver, and Emergency Oxygen Provider courses.

Emergency First Response (EFR)

Emergency First Response (CPR & Secondary Care) 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. We also cover injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening. Participants focus on secondary assessment and first aid through knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice.
