The Emergency First Response training (First Aid / BHV) is an education for which we do not have to go into the water. During this training you will learn how to offer help to people who are in a life-threatening situation (primary care). In addition, you also receive the follow-up to primary care. You will learn how to continue further help until the emergency services arrive.
You also learn how to deal with an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator), what to do if someone does not have a heartbeat (providing resuscitation and heart massage) and how to treat severe bleeding.
This training is not only meant for divers. Nor can divers participate in this training. The EFR certificate is an internationally recognized first aid certificate and can also serve as a first aid part for your BHV obligation!
Because of the unique set-up of the curriculum, employees of companies and private individuals can familiarize themselves with the First Aid very quickly. The EFR training will take 1 day in which we will deal with the theory and will go through the self-study questions, where you will take an exam later in the day. about it. In addition, it is also a practical training in which we teach you the skills on how to act in certain situations. We will conclude the day with a number of end scenarios, where you can apply the learned skills in practice.
The course offers a lot of flexibility. The new materials -a clear manual and DVD-of the EFR course make home study possible, so that during the lesson more attention is paid to the practical skills. The very latest resuscitation guidelines are incorporated in it, and that means that defibrillation is also discussed. In addition, an introduction to the use of oxygen in medical emergencies is part of the EFR program which can be fully included as an option, as a result of which the EOP certificate (emergency oxygen provider) can also be obtained!

Both the EFR course and the Care for Children course are taught to deal with an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator). A victim with a cardiac arrest has the greatest chance of survival (70%) if the arrest can be stopped within the first minutes by administering a defibrillation, an electric shock. The medical emergency services usually only reach the patient after a few minutes. The chance of survival has now been reduced to only 2 to 5%. After a short training you are authorized to apply defibrillation as a "layman".
