This is one reason more people are looking for PADI certification as EFR instructors. You can now contribute to the development of scuba diving by holding instruction classes for EFR instructor learners. These courses are held in a serene environment, making it easy for both the instructor and the learner to enjoy the program.

As a qualified EFR instructor, you are able to train a highly skilled group of interns who will help improve safety in diving. These interns under your supervision will also attain new skills to help them not only improve their diving expertise but also gain more confidence when they finish the course. Nothing is as fulfilling as seeing a learner who passed through your training program continue to save lives and make diving a safer activity.

Leveraging Intense Training

The EFR instructors’ course allows you to impact crucial skills including basic assessment, CPR and using a defibrillator, which comes in handy in the field. As a qualified instructor, your students can complete both the diving course for rescuers and EFR course as a package. However, it is important to note that you must be certified as a scuba instructor with PADI to offer training to your interns.

To become the best instructor, it is important to have high the EFR Instructor rating to gain more respect in the industry. If you are a PADI Divemaster or assistant Instructor, you can now issue EFR certifications after undergoing the extensive EFR Instructor training. The course also includes EFR ‘Care for Children’ Instructor rating to introduce you to important skills, such as first aid skills.

If you are planning for the course, make sure you meet the following requirements:

  • Have completed both adult and child CPR over the last 24 months.
  • Basic first aid course in the last 2 years.
  • 18 years of age and above.
