Our Go PRO interns enrolled on our next PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) are soon-to-be PADI Instructors and need to refresh First Aid skills before their Emergency First Response Instructor (EFRI) course.

Full-time, dedicated, and all-round entertainer, PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Timmy, conducts the Emergency First Response course’s Primary and Secondary Care for adults, children and infants on the deck of our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre. The skills involve a variety of First Aid, CPR and secondary care, from checking patient airway to bandaging and splinting.

It is a requirement for our candidates to be qualified as EFRI because it is a PADI Standard to exit the PADI Instructor Examination (IE). Enrolling on to the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) there’s no need for this, which is why the EFRI is conducted concurrently to the IDC.

Once they are certified, they will see how valuable learning the skills are when our adventure groups start to arrive in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Our Expedition Borneo groups, and groups from schools and universities, can be as large as 45 in number of participants. Every measure to care for their health and safety when supervising groups is our top priority – as it should, and will be for our interns!
