EFR and PADI Rescue Diver | Diving Course Introduction
Our Koh Tao PADI Rescue diver course and EFR training will teach you to assist other divers, deal with diving problems both at the surface and underwater and develop behavior to prevent problems from occurring.
You'll become a safer, more aware diver, able to anticipate and prevent diving problems before they occur, and cope with emergencies either by assisting a more experienced diver or taking control yourself.
This Koh Tao PADI course is a step up from your previous dive training and is demanding and challenging.
Let's take a look at what's involved in the four day program:
Koh Tao PADI Rescue Diver Course: Schedule
Step 1: Emergency First Responder
We begin with the Emergency First Response [EFR] course. The PADI EFR course is a CPR and first aid qualification (valid for 2 years). Conducted over a full day, you will learn to assess emergency situations, Check for breathing, Circulation, Spinal injuries and serious bleeding and take appropriate action.
After the practical session, you'll take a short exam to verify your understanding.
Step 2: PADI Rescue Diver
Next we move on to the Koh Tao PADI Rescue diver course, which will be conducted over the following three days.
Beginning with theory presentations and the rescue diver video during the morning of day one, we'll then progress into the water work.
The PADI Rescue Diver course will cover topics like assisting tired and panicked divers, dealing with unconscious divers in the water, self rescue techniques and diver stress, diving first aid, emergency management, missing diver procedures and various exit techniques.
The first few sessions will focus on you mastering these skills and techniques, including a series of training dives.
Once you're properly prepared, the course will conclude with an afternoon of final scenarios where you take responsibility for the dive boat, dealing with simulated problems. Missing divers, injured snorkelers, bad buoyancy or overexertion during dives - anything can happen, and you'll be primed to respond. Challenging but lots of fun.
Accommodation - Sairee Beach Koh Tao | PADI Rescue Diver Course
The EFR and Rescue Diver Koh Tao diving course includes 4 nights accommodation on Koh Tao*.
For our standard package [13,000 baht] the included accommodation is a fan room with double bed and en-suite bathroom, near the dive shop.
Everything you need is within very close walking distance [ATMs, bars, shops, restaurants, beach, internet cafes etc.].
If you prefer something more upmarket [air conditioned, hot shower, tv and fridge etc], we have a range of luxury accommodation at Simple Life resort.
Check out the Sairee Beach accommodation section of our website to see photos and find out pricing details, or click on the image to the right.
*Included basic fan room is based on a two person booking [i.e. double or twin room for two people taking the diving course].
For single occupancy there is a small supplemental charge. With the course we can cover three nights accommodation - you just need to cover the fourth night (500-600 baht).
If you're on a tight budget we can find cheaper accommodation for the full four nights with no additional charge, but to be honest it's worth paying the few hundred baht extra and being comfortable!
