Emergency First Responder (EFR)

CPR and First Aid are good skills for anyone, especially those who partake in an adventure sport like scuba diving.Plus, these certs are needed to go on to become a Rescue Diver! We teach this course with a few optional skill sets – both Care for Children and AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Certifications are good for two years, at which time you’ll need to refresh your skills.


The price of the course is $200. This price covers all materials, course books, instruction, and certifications.


The class typically takes place once every month, in the evenings from 6:00pm to 10:30pm.



Rescue DIver

This course builds upon everything you’ve already learned and trains you to help prevent and manage any problems that may arise throughout your diving career. Rescue is one of the more demanding courses you can take – and also one of the most rewarding!


Prior to the class and pool work, you need to complete the PADI online e-Learning course.

*You must have current First Aid & CPR Training to take the Rescue Course (EFR course covers this).


The price of the course is $550. This covers the online e-Learning homework, course materials, rental gear w/air fills), pool time, beach time, certification card, and instruction.
