1. Course overview

Through a multi-media approach of independent study, classroom sessions and practical teaching assignments, you learn to conduct Emergency First Response courses.

This course is mandatory for anyone training to become a PADI Instructor.

2. What you'll learn

The instructor course covers specific goals and performance requirements for the Primary Care, Secondary Care, Care for Children and CPR & AED courses – along with instruction on how to structure learning, requirements of performance-based training, and your role as the instructor in the learning environment.

You also learn how to motivate students, evaluate student knowledge, present course content effectively, become proficient in developing students’ hands-on skills practice sessions – as well as learning how to present an effective scenario-based learning experience.

In addition, you’ll receive information helpful in marketing your EFR business – should that be your reason for becoming an EFR Instructor.

We will send you the Emergency First Response Instructor e-Learning materials, which will teach you the background information you need for the practical skills part of the course. It also allows you to study at your own pace.
