The Emergency First Response Instructor (EFRI) course provides you with the additional training necessary to teach the Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR), Secondary Care (First Aid) and Care for Children courses. You need to become an EFR Instructor prior to becoming a PADI Instructor.
During the EFRI course, you will build on your skill as an Emergency First Responder and focus on developing your instructional abilities to teach these skills to others to help them to save lives.
Through a multi-media approach of independent study, classroom sessions and practical teaching assignments, you learn to conduct Emergency First Response courses. EFRI presentations covered on the course include:
• Course Orientation
• Standards Overview
• EFR Programme Philosophy
• Learning and Instruction Workshop
• Multiple Skills Workshops
• How to Organise and Conduct EFR Programmes
• Marketing Workshop
The instructor course covers specific goals and performance requirements for the Primary Care, Secondary Care and Care for Children courses, along with instruction on how to structure learning, the requirements of performance-based training, and your role as the instructor in the learning environment. You also learn how to motivate students, evaluate student knowledge, present course content effectively, become proficient in developing students’ hands-on skills practice sessions, and are taught how to present an effective scenario-based learning experience.
To enter the Emergency First Response Instructor course, you must be 18 years old and have completed CPR and first aid training in the past 24 months or a be a practicing medical professional such as a physician, Emergency Medical Technician, Paramedic or Registered Nurse. If you require prerequisite training before commencing your EFRI course then we can arrange for this training prior to you starting.
What does it involve?
The cost of the EFRI course includes all the required course materials (but not your EFR Instructor application fee, £92.40 as of January 2016, which is payable directly to EFR upon completion), which you will be given in advance of the course to complete required advance study. The EFRI is typically a two day programme, but we have the flexibility to schedule workshops around your schedule and at your own pace. Our courses are taught in Telford Shropshire, and the surrounding areas.
