Rotating your class efficiently from the roles of victim to rescuer and then as the coach reading the steps from the student participant manual you quickly get into the routine of the lessons. CONFIDENCE
With evaluations being given for all sessions you learn from the experience of others in addition to your own
presentations. Your own proficiency and confidence in your own clear, detailed demonstrations will show your professionalism above all others and your future students will work hard to copy your example within all their skills. Recommended materials such as an Automated External Defibrillators (AED), Automated Defibrillator (AED) training kit and Oxygen Kit can be purchased separately and requirements for these items should be notified in advance of the course date. Your demonstration skills will be practised and built to a very high standard as the course progresses until they have become clear and detailed for any student to be able to follow, copy and then practise until the skills have become almost second nature to them.
Your own abilities and attitude toward all of the scenarios involved will determine how well your students react
towards the scenarios they are given and also how well they take in all the information acquired during the course. Your EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE INSTRUCTOR Course will give all the necessary time to learn the procedures for running a successful EFR Courses and will also build your own knowledge and experience of all the vital components and First Aid techniques, which you will be teaching to others in the future.
With the course being available to all members of the public you must now remember that as a EFR Instructor you should not channel your efforts at divers alone. A large market place exists for this type of course and successful Instructors are able to teach within both the public and private sector. For instance, all businesses require a First Aider when staff levels exceed a minimum number.
During the course you will gain the skills and marketing knowledge to be able to provide this course to divers and their families. Even someone who is always left as shore cover could some day benefit from the skills taught on the course in addition to Boat Skippers, other Instructors, your Dive Masters and many more. Every one of your students is a potential student for this interesting and very active course.
Being completely classroom based this course can be very effectively be marketed during the winter months when or if diving is slowing down in your area and combining it with EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE you get double the input and double the interest from your students who will now be more likely to want to progress through the PADI system to RESCUE DIVER and beyond.
