“The purpose of the EFR Approved Diving Emergency Medical Responder (DEMR) Specialty Course is to provide the knowledge and skills that are necessary for an emergency to help reduce pain, sustain life and minimize the consequences of an injury or sudden illness. The course is to teach students to be prepared, confident, and armed with the knowledge to take control and deal with virtually any non-diving and Diving based medical or traumatic emergency. This course is the next level up from First Aid training. This course sits between First Aid and EMT level so perfect for all learning levels”. The course will consist of two sections, the first section is online theory, and the second section will be a minimum of two days practical (16 hours min, this event). The online section should take approximately 20 hours to complete and will be a combination of slides, voice-overs, videos, quizzes, and pdf files. The earned certification is valid for two years.
To enroll for this course, you will need to be a qualified primary and secondary care first aider, Stress & Rescue Diver (or equivalent) and 18 years of age. Price is £350pp and we can only have a maximum of 12 attendees, so reserve your space sooner rather than later!
