Just imagine the following Scenario:
You are walking through a supermarket sorting out the daily shopping, rushing down the lanes putting lots of things in your shopping trolley etc. It is very hectic. All of a sudden you find somebody lying on the floor. A lot of people are standing around but nobody really knows what to do.
That’s where we stop
Now consider the same scenario just a little bit different. By the time you rush to the person laying on the floor somebody else is already assessing the person. Another has activated the Emergency Medical Services while a third has gone to get the nearest First Aid Kit and the Automated External Defibrillator.

What is the difference?

Members of the public knowing what to do if a Medical Emergency arises. How do you get people from standing around not knowing what to do, to properly responding in an emergency happening in their daily environment?

The answer is very simple – Emergency First Response. Using the latest information on emergency care and CPR as well as first aid techniques, we will train everybody with an interest and give them the proper attitude and confidence to respond to medical emergencies.

Because your time is valuable, we will customise a training schedule that meets your needs and convenience.

By enrolling in an Emergency First Response First Aid program you will not only increase the safety of our environment, you also get the confidence to properly respond in an emergency.

The Emergency First Response Program is a CPR and FIRST AID course with valid instruction in Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (FIRST AID) and a separate Care for Children Course, developed by the Emergency First Response Corp. These programs are designed to be very flexible and follow emergency medical care protocols used by professional emergency medical services.

Program validity and Standardised Course
The Emergency First Response program is based on state-of-the-art instructional design and established with international patient care protocols. Emergency First Response follows the Guidelines 2011 for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and the standards set by the consensus view of the Basic Life Support (BLS) Working Group of the International Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). ILCOR is an international standards group representing many of the world’s major resuscitation organisations.

The EFR programs use flexible delivery method to meet your scheduling needs and participants learning styles. The Instructors are using standardised methods and materials for delivering the program, all learning outcomes are clearly specified in terms of knowledge, understanding and practical application.

Participants master the required skills and knowledge through a combination of independent study, instructor led skill development and scenario practice. Instructors will add relevant information specific to your local environment and/ or local laws and regulations including Risk Assessment, Safety Procedures and Emergency First Aid Equipment requirements.

The program methodology is based on seeing, hearing and doing and on a continuous assessment process. As a leader in the field of first aid training, EFR has applied the performance-based philosophy of training. Performance is measured individually as student’s progress through the skills. The main emphasis is aimed at hands on patient care and is structured from simple to complex.

Consistency in training and assessment is achieved by requiring instructors to undergo a formal Instructor training course. Instructors are supplied with the state-of-the-art instructional materials, lesson guides and participant materials. This provides for an objective orientated, and consistent standard of delivery world-wide. Instructors are updated on a quarterly basis with a training bulletin/newsletter. Instructors are also required to renew every two years and must fulfill certain renewal-requirements during that period.

How long is the training valid?
Retraining is recommended every two years. After the successful course completion, Emergency First Responders can refresh their skills by participating in an instructor led skills practice session or retake the whole program.

CYDIVE Instructor Training Academy has developed an ongoing Training and Refresher schedule to ensure that you always have a current First Aid certification.

For every minute a patient is in cardiac arrest, the chance of survival is reduced by ten percent. CYDIVE Instructor Training Academy is training you to take swift and appropriate action in an emergency.

Emergency First Responders have reported that they have not hesitated to use their skills in an emergency situation. Proper First Aid training gives you and your family the confidence to render emergency care.
