Who should take this course?
Emergency First Response training focuses on building confidence in ordinary
people and increasing their willingness to respond swiftly when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn simple to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a non-stressful learning environment. Please note that this is not a replacement for medical care by trained professional but emergency care till such professional reaches you for help. This could help you save a friend or near and dear one day.
The following EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical
guidelines for emergency care.
