Emergency First Response (EFR)
Emergency First Response (EFR) training focuses on building the confidence of the participants and increasing their willingness to respond 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. All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you start learning right away.
EFR Refresher (Every 24 Months)
Your EFR certification is valid for 24 months. You will therefore have to refresh your CPR and first aid skills and re-certify them once those two years have transpired. That is what the EFR Refresher course is designed to do. Focusing on key skills, the course allows you to stay up-to-date and ready to lend aid when needed. As part of the EFR Refresher course you will also learn how to use the automated external defibrillator (AED).
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, at any time. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable device used to administer an electric shock to the heart and restore the heart's normal rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. Research indicates that if defibrillated within the first minute of collapse, the victim's chances for survival are close to 90 percent ... considerably higher than when standard CPR is applied.
