PADI Standards require that for an OWSI to be qualified as OWSI, they must have basic first aid skills!
Staff Instructor Pablo conducts the Emergency First Response course on the deck of our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre for several of our Go PRO interns, as well as one of our repeater clients, Simon.
Some participants are refreshing their skills because it is a requirement to renew the EFR certification every 2 years to keep updated on any changes to first aid procedures.
What is very attractive about the EFR (particularly for our guest Simon) is that anyone can teach it once they have completed training from an EFRI Trainer!
For internship candidates on the IDC, the EFRI training from our resident Platinum PADI Course Director is included in the package.
