Respond Right First Aid

As we develop our diving experiences and skill level we tend to travel further a field to explore new dive sites and locations that satisfy our quest for personal challenge and enjoyment. As we find ourselves in more remote locations we need to be self sufficient particularly in the event of an accident/ incident.

Being qualified in  Advanced First Aid will give you the skills to manage an accident scene and provide essential first aid. The skills learnt in this program can also be taken to your work environment and will give you the confidence to assist a colleague, friend, family member or a total stranger in a time of need.

First Aid Programs are split into three areas:

  • 1. Basic First Aid—minimum requirement for SSI Stress & Rescue Course
  • 2. Advanced First Aid—work cover approved for the work place and beyond
  • 3. Oxygen Administration—essential qualification as a dive professional

If you are considering taking the next step in your diving career and becoming a dive professional— PADI Divemaster or PADI Open Water Instructor you will need to complete Advanced First Aid and Oxygen Administration to work in the industry. If you are required to have First Aid as part of your employment conditions or if your workplace designates you to be the Work Place First Aid Officer then Advanced First Aid must be obtained.
